Speaking to Andrew Marr this morning, Nick Clegg revealed:
“Grown-up politicians talk to each other across party lines. Over the last few weeks I have had lengthy conversations with Ed Miliband, David Miliband, with Tony Blair, with Peter Mandelson … talking about Europe, talking about political reform.”
So it’s not just Vince Cable who is on texting terms with the Labour hierachy. However we should remember what Ed Miliband has said before about Clegg:
“I would find it difficult to work with him.”
Similarly, Lord Wood – one of Miliband’s closest advisers – was scathing about Clegg’s “apology” on LabourList earlier this week.
DPM Clegg working alongside PM Miliband is surely unthinkable…
