Like the rest us, Clegg will be very pleased when the Lib Dem conference closes later today.
After a non-credible performance on Newsnight (his interview is at the end of the programme), where Paxman’s face will live in the collective memory, Clegg will produce a sound bite to trump all others:
If you don’t agree with our policies . . . then don’t vote for us.
At last, after five days of showing us all how not to do it, he gets something right.
