I don't know if you watched today's Politics Show, where LibDem leader Nick Clegg was grilled by an audience of voters in Stourbridge. I think even LibDem supporters will have winced at his shambolic performance. He truly was all over the place.
His first dilemma came when Jon Sopel asked him what the age of criminal responsibility should be. He appeared to be about to say that he thought it was Ok at the current age of 10, when Sopel rescued him by reminding that it was LibDem policy to increase it to twelve, meaning that the Bulger killers would have got off scot free. Clegg was left gulping like a goldfish.
The discussion then moved on to immigration. Sopel asked Clegg that under Chris Huhne's policy of only allowing imigration into areas outside London and the South East would it be possible for an immigrant who had lost his job to move out of the area he was initially allocated to in order to find work. Clegg looked very pleased with himself when he replied with a straight "no". Sopel then asked if the immigrant would then be elgible for unemployment benefit. "Ain't got a clue," said Nick. Well, actually he didn't, but he might just as well have done.
And so it went on.
No grasp of policy, no grasp of detail. If he's caught out like this in the leader debates, the LibDems are going to have a real problem. And that's not me speaking as a partisan Conservative, it's a statement of fact.
