Returning the compliment

The snivelling Clegg comes back from the comfort and security of his £300,000 armoured car and personal guards to launch a thinly veiled attack on that nice Mr Scumeron, branding opponents of AV as "dinosaurs".

That is the nearest the sniveller will get to anything like an actual "attack", and while it may be directed at his coalition partner, it also catches tens of millions of voters. One does wonder about this modern-day habit of politicians insulting their electorates, but it seems very much in vogue.

What is surprising, though, is that some of them seem rather surprised and hurt when we return the compliments.
