Liberal Democrat ministers: Spoilt for choice

At work today I was writing a news story based on a Department of Health press release about the £32m being made available to fund psychological therapy for children and young people.

Three ministers were quoted, but I needed just one for my story.

Which to choose? There was the deputy prime minister, a health minister and the children's minister.

In other words, Nick Clegg, Paul Burstow and Sarah Teather.

There never were such times for any Liberal or Liberal Democrat alive today. Let's make sure we appreciate being in government - though you can see why some Tories complain that the Liberal Democrats are being allowed to associate themselves with all the warm and fluffy things the Coalition is doing.

Since you ask, I chose Paul Burstow.
