‘Well, he would say that wouldn’t he’ will surely be the reaction (if anyone does bother reacting) to Nick Clegg’s article in today’s Independent about the state of British democracy. But just read it. British politics is archaic, out of touch, and badly in need of reform (as I’ve previously argued), and Clegg has some reasonable ideas about how to fix things. The stats on elections and voting, and the part about fiscal responsibility is particularly interesting. I sadly fear neither of the two main parties is going to listen to any of this, but credit to Clegg for a coherent and principled approach.

Laura: Look it’s not too late. Just stand at the podium with Luxembourg’s PM, look straight down the camera, and admit you’ve done nothing for two months.
Boris: I can’t Laura I’m scared. Do you really think they will notice if I just don’t go? https://t.co/DEsuYIglXu
