I know it’s considered poor form to knife the Lib Dems these days but the Clegg claim in the other night’s tv debate that their party had been devoid of expenses difficulties was someway short of the truth as millionaire Chris Huhne’s trouser press demand , the MP putting up his model daughter at the taxpayer’s expense and now this footage from Andrew Neil at their press conference illustrates. Old brillo-pad deftly exposes their holier than thou attitude and highlights how Cleggover himself has had not been averse to having his own snout in the trough with his claims.

Next leader’s debate is the day after tomorrow. Can we expect it to be another gamechanging event?
