Clegg for PM?

Email Print

Ever since the first televised debate for prime minister in UK history, Nick Clegg—head of the Liberal  party—has been zooming in the polls. Neither the corporatist conservative David Cameron nor the corporatist laborite Gordon Brown appealed. Now, Clegg is a corporatist too, but his plan for proportional representation would empower smaller parties, which is a great idea. He also is a decentralist. And the Liberals do have a classical liberal heritage, unlike the Tories and Labor. Clegg is undoubtedly no better than Cameron-Brown, and some great people support Cameron and might influence him in office, but how fun to see a shakeup.
