Following Nick Clegg's interview on The Sunday Politics this morning, it was his comments on future coalitions and electoral reform that the Guardian chose to headline.
However, these comments were interesting too:
He also claimed the caps on election spending had been broken in the election: "One of the things that needs to happen in the kind of technical postmortem about this general election is how on earth the Conservatives spent such vast American-style sums of money across the country from a centrally directed campaign, which ran a coach and horses through the financial limits on how local candidates can campaign.
"So they were able to do that. We clearly were not able to match that remotely. I mean, it was a real David and Goliath battle for resources."Quite who will carry out this postmortem remains to be seen.
I was not convinced by another of Nick's claims:
Clegg blamed the Lib Dem general election collapse on a late swing prompted by a fear that had its genesis in Scotland.
He said: "My own view is something shifted very, very late in the day in England, in English constituency after English constituency."First, because a cool look at the idea that Lib Dem MPs would hold on found the evidence wanting - even if I failed to draw the full, awful conclusions in this post from February.
Second, because the Lib Dem vote did not transfer en masse to the Conservatives. As Seth Thévoz and Lewis Baston have demonstrated, it splintered in several directions and the Conservatives gained many seats without increasing their vote at all.
Perhaps the Liberal Democrats need a "technical postmortem" too?
