I am impressed with that Nick Clegg chap from the Con Dems, he seems to have managed to irritate the Scottish Government, the Northern Ireland Assembly and the Welsh Assembly all in one go... That's pretty impressive work for one brief statement in the House of Commons on the Alternative Vote (AV) referendum - what with the London centred parties deciding that Welsh, Northern Irish and Scottish electoral concerns should take a back seat as David ('Call me Dave') Cameron desperately tries to pander to both Lib Dem's dreams of electoral reform and hard core Tory backbench (and not so backbench) opposition to any attempts to extend democracy and give a measure of equal worth to ordinary peoples votes. I wonder who else he will be able to annoy when he really gets to work with the public sector / public service cuts?
