Fleet Street out in force today attacking Clegg for his hopeless policies, and his tendency to receive money into his personal bank account from lobbyists.
This all adds up to one thing.
The Sun, The Telegraph, The Mail, Express et al don’t believe Clegg will make it to power, and they don’t care if they hurt him. They want to demonstrate loyalty to Cameron, and get onside.
The Lib Dem surge, now falling away, just isn’t big enough.
