what happened to nick clegg?

Saturday, May 8th, 2010

why do voters let themselves be bullied by the tories and labour in the uk or the republicans and democrats in the u.s.? why do voters genuinely believe that a vote for a 3rd party is a wasted vote? this is not true. and although nick clegg and his liberal democrats actually, on the MP front, did worse than in the last election, since no one party has received a clear majority, clegg’s star turning moment 3 weeks ago in the first telecast prime minister debate has given the liberal democrats a chance to enter the national parliament alongside either the conservatives or labour. and that is a good thing.

so with the hung election and the uk’s enthusiasm for gordon brown at a low, it looks like clegg has been the big winner irregardless.
