I once asked Tony Blair how he found being Labour leader while in opposition compared with being in government. He remarked that he would wake up each morning in opposition and ask himself: "What do I have to say today?" In government, he awoke to the thought: "What do I have to do today?"
If you are a LibDem leader you arouse yourself with the frustration of wondering what you have to say, but equally then focusing on how you get anyone to report upon it and communicate it to a wider audience.
