We blame our politicians (often quite rightly) for our democratic deficit but we should shoulder our fair share of the blame too!
Witness the insane love affair with Nick Clegg all because of one appearance on T.V., more notable for the fact that he didn't "fall flat on his face" than for anything he said.
Anyone who thinks that, given the taste of power, even at one remove, he will not ingratiate himself with Labour, and so deny the U.K. its full measure of democracy,is sadly mistaken.
The LibDems have form where the aforementioned is concerned.
If "Rinso Clegg" is the answer, heaven knows what the question was!
