Cleggy himself may be a smooth, power-hungry public schoolboy, but behind him is the same old rabble of whining, hand-wringing beardies, who will never, ever, not in a fucking month of Sundays be able to work with inhabitants of the real world.
As Charlotte Gore points out, the only thing these idiots are interested in is their precious fucking PR system:
"They claim that economic stability is their top priority. Quite simply I’m not sure I believe that now.
"So sod civil liberties. Sod sorting out the deficit this year. Sod the plans to scrap ID cards and the Digital Economy Bill. As long as the sodding Lib Dems get their sodding PR, everything will be just fine, right?"
Unfortunately, Charlotte: right. These sad political wonks couldn't give a shit what happens to the nation, as long as they get to sit in a warm bath and play with their little principles. So fuck 'em.
Dave, you're on your own. And now it's time to take action. Firm, decisive action, as befits a man who wants to lead a nation. Not everyone wants a Tory government, but right now it's the least worst option by fucking miles.
Tell the Lib Dems that your final offer is already on the table, and that they have until 10am tomorrow to accept it. After that, there's nothing. No deal.
They won't be able to re-re-re-run all their endless committees, and even if they do they'll keep you talking for fucking weeks, while our money pours down through the egg-timer.
If - when - they come back bleating that they want more time, or that they want you to match whatever outrageous lies Gordon has told them, give them a simple message: Too Late. Fuck Off.
Govern this country with a minority government. Kick off the policies you promised us. Ignore the wailing from the Commons. Fight. Push. Make the 'change' you promised us.
CF has oft' pointed out that he 'aint no Tory, but Dave, if you pull this off, you might well win another vote. Probably tens of thousands more votes.
We'll be watching. Get this right, call an election next year, and you'll be thanked in the ballot box. With Labour self-destructing, and the Lib Dems held in the deepest imaginable contempt, you'll get a landslide that'll make Bliar's look tiny.
For Christ's sake, get on with it Dave - you've got nothing to lose, and a whole fucking economy to save.
Just fucking do it.
