NICK CL€GG, Holier than thou?

In recent days Nick Clegg has suggested he brings something new to politics. But in his own use of expenses, his left-wing policies and his party's dirty campaigning he is not the change Britain needs. In fact he may not bring change at all. He may keep Gordon Brown in power for five more years.

Only with David Cameron can you be certain that the Labour years will end. David Cameron forced Conservative MPs to step down because of expense misuse. Nick Clegg has not forced any of his colleagues to resign.
