Writing intermittently on life, politics, and society

Share victory, share defeat

John Redwood has beef:

… The former [conservative party] leadership contender, today expressed irritation with the way in which Lib Dems were allowed to take credit for the “nice” things done by the coalition. “One of the things I do not like is the ‘new narrative’ that Lib Dems have come into the government to bridle the instincts of Conservatives,” he said. “This storyline entails allowing Lib Dems to claim credit for all the nice things that happen.”

Maybe, but I’m not currently seeing that narrative in action myself; Nick Clegg seems less like someone who could claim credit for reigning in the Conservatives, and more like a human shield for the more unpopular coalition policies.
