Listening to Nick Clegg's speech I was struck by the fact that I could imagine David Cameron giving more or less exactly the same speech, almost word for word. It was almost as if the Tories had written it for him. In fact I suspect he wasn't delivering the speech from Liverpool at all but from way up inside of Cameron's arse.
It was a good speech, delivered well. The Number 10 team will be pleased. The boy Clegg has done what was asked of him.
