Lib Dem Conference is over. Clegg has delivered his speech and no credible leadership challenge has materialised. The messages from the Lib Dem Conference have been not been unclear but they have been contradictory.
Lib Dems go on about how fair they have made tax while they have been in government. But the gap between rich and poor is increasing. There is empty rhetoric about fairness coming from the same people who voted for unfair cuts to benefits paid to families with disabled children.
The most striking contradiction however is this: When apologising for making, rather than breaking promises, they emphasise that they are not in power, then in the next sentence claim to be influencing government. They are taking voters for fools.
Clegg put on a good act in Brighton, trying to hide the fact that party are like an entire colony of rabbits in the headlights of a 20 tonne truck on the road to electoral oblivion.
