Are the wheels coming off the Clegg-Cable relationship?

Screen shot 2010-04-08 at 08.53.56 Jason Beattie of The Mirror has started a blog and I think it's going to be essential reading. His latest blog focuses on what looks like an unhappy relationship between Nick Clegg and Vince Cable. Jason reports:

"Mrs Clegg, Miriam Gonzalez Durantez, has been texting her Spanish amigos with gripes about Vince Cable. Apparently, Mrs Gonzalez Durantez is not happy with Vince's habit of going freelance, announcing policies without fully consulting her husband first."

He speculates that the relationship might be more more "Steptoe & Son than Flanagan & Allen".
