Why Do Conservatives Fear A Nick Clegg Coup?

As Gordon Brown recruits Lib Dem advisers into his team, many fear that he will split away the left wing of the Lib Dem party and the right will fall to a Nick Clegg coup. They would then compete directly for Conservative votes. Would that be such a bad thing?

If there were two Conservative Parties instead of two Labour Parties, we could be the ones to make electoral pacts and target Labour in combination, rather than facing a double enemy. Lib Dems have always obliged Labour in this way, especially noticeable in 2001 but also to some extent in 2005.

It need not be all doom and gloom. Cameron has prepared the ground by adopting many Lib Dem policies that fit with Conservative ideals. Courage, Mes Braves!!

If you think this is such a great idea, why are you trying to smear Clegg with this "conservative" label?

iain dale's asking questions as to why gordon brown's recrutiing Lib Dem advisers. and trying to appoint ashdown and so on. looking beyond that, the lib dem party is vulnerable to brown pulling in the left wing of the lib dem party into labour.

i'm just playing along and thinking that if that happened, then the right wing of the lib dems might take control of the party.

something for me to do on a saturday.

sorry if it's a smear!

i don't watch football!
