Power sharing talks as battered Lib Dems gather
More strange framing from the worst photographer in the universe but I thought it poignant that the Lib Dems are holding their internal talks on power-sharing in Transport House, long the home of the Labour party which the Lib Dems were hoping to displace in this election.
This location would have had a very different potency if the Lib Dems hadn’t had a 1992 Kinnock style night of disappointment.
They gather battered by the shock and disappointment of Thursday night and sleep-starved. Nick Clegg on his way in again emphasised the four principles he’s said must be at the heart of any programme…the fourth one being comprehensive political reform.
There is no sign of him getting what he would describe as that which makes you feel we move soon towards discussion of a lower key “confidence and supply” discussion which allows the Lib Dems to keep at arms length from the Tories but which gives David Cameron no job security in No 10.
