An Unfortunate Misunderstanding

"There were some people, particularly around the height of the Iraq war, who gave up on the Labour Party and turned to the Liberal Democrats as a sort of left-wing conscience of the Labour Party.  I totally understand that some of these people are not happy with what the Lib Dems are doing in coalition with the Conservatives. The Lib Dems never were and aren't a receptacle for left-wing dissatisfaction with the Labour Party. There is no future for that; there never was."

I was one of those people. More fool me. I just wish Nick Clegg had told me all this a little earlier. That way I wouldn't have embarrassed either of us by giving him my unwanted support.
