It’s Nick Clegg’s Fault

May 2, 2010

It really is.

It’s Nick Clegg’s fault that we all have really got to vote on Thursday, since he has decided to interpret the results of a first past the post system not on the number of seats a party gets, but as though it were a proportional system on the percentage of the vote. (Try fitting that on Twitter)

It’s Nick Clegg’s fault that so many ‘don’t know’s and ‘won’t vote’ are engaging in politics, which so many including he have done so much to discredit over the last few years. By so many I include MPs, journalists and voters who generate or throw dirt at it.

It’s Nick Clegg’s fault that I’m writing this post.

It’s Nick Clegg’s fault that election night is going to be exciting (or terrifying depending on how seriously you take it).

It’s Nick Clegg’s fault that we finally have some proper debate on immigration with someone who is finally getting some media coverage for arguing brilliantly for increasing it (even though it sometimes sounds like he’s arguing against it).

It’s Nick Clegg’s fault that people are actually looking at Liberal Democrat policies. Even if they are a bit of a Guardian-lefty wish list. It’s Nick Clegg’s fault those policies on splitting banks, reducing nuclear arms, taking a softer line with Iran, etc are a bit mad, or at any rate, I don’t understand them.

Or, the best I read today on #nickcleggsfault:

“Still trending. Wonder whose fault that is.”
