Coalition Creaks as Hughes Crowned

Within twelve hours of being elected deputy leader of the LibDems, Simon Hughes is straight out of the trouble-making blocks. Working Millbank this morning, there is no denying he is relishing being the opposition in government. “Being in coalition doesn’t mean you cease to be a Liberal Democrat.” “My job is to make sure the voters see and hear the Liberal Democrats putting forward the Liberal Democrat case.” His heart is set on creating¬†opposition¬†spokesmen to be his trouble making minions.

It looks like tuition fees, which Willets is less than subtly hinting are rising, will be the first coaliton dividing battle. Funny how obvious the correlation is between being disgruntled and being a failed former leadership contender.¬†Ming, Kennedy and Hughes could whip up quite a yellow rage about this one, and many more to come…
