Nick Clegg rubbishes cash-for-seats deal story even more effectively

From BBC News:
Mr Clegg yesterday slapped down the idea and insisted that all 50 Liberal Democrat MPs will vote against boundary changes in retaliation for the Conservatives' failure to support House of Lords reform. 
He went on to mock Mr Shapps with a reference to the MP’s controversial history of running a business under an alias that sold advice on how to make a quick fortune. 
"I suppose finally that's a get-rich-quick scheme which he is actually prepared to put his name to," Mr Clegg said.
I wonder if something is stirring in what we may loosely call the minds of right-wing Conservative MPs. Are they beginning to realise that blocking any reform of the Lords was not such a bright idea after all?
