As many predicted, the hounds of hell have been unleashed on the Lib Dems by those who are fighting to save their precious 2 party system. The right wing press, acting as proxies for the Conservatives, are fighting a rearguard action to save the system for Cameron and Brown. We will have more of their attacks in days to come.
The choice of subject matter is interesting and shows a bottom-of-barrel scraping technique of news reporting. Apparently, an 8 year old article written by Nick can be misrepresented to make him a Nazi. And we have the Torygraph allegations that money was paid into Nick's private account with an implication that it was for private benefit. In reality, a huge number of MPs of all parties get funding for their own offices from donors who don't want it for the party generally. And that was what these donations were for.
How this will affect the opinion polls is yet to be seen. I suspect the froth on the Lib Dem ratings will be blown off.
