The smears against Nick Clegg may help the Liberal Democrats

So blatant and poorly founded are the smears against Nick Clegg in this morning's Tory newspapers that there is every chance that they will rebound in our favour.

These newspapers can be lumped together with "the old parties" to form a larger What We Are Fighting Against.

Given the current anti-politics mood of the electorate, there is every chance that this approach will resound with them.

In the mean time, if you want chapter and verse on the smears join the Facebook group Fight the Smears (UK).

And if you want some fun generating smears of your own, use the Daily Mail-o-matic.

I don't think the Daily Mail's story was "poorly founded". It quoted from Clegg's own writings. It showed Clegg to hold anti-British views. Coming from a man who wants to scrap Trident and adopt the EU Constitution, this is no surprise.
