Ever since the coalition government was formed, political commentators and Labour hacks have been falling over themselves to suggest that it is only a matter of time until Nick Clegg defects to the Conservative Party. So the news in today’s Telegraph may have been simply the inevitable news that party members dreaded, as Clegg throws off his Lib Dem identity.
But wait: the defection is not as expected to the right, but to the ‘two Eds’ party. Do the Telegraph know something we don’t? Or, as you cast your eye down the list of Twittering MPs and allow your eye to alight on the names of Diane Abbott and Stella Creasy, is it clear that the Telegraph could do with employing a better proofreader?
