I do find the "candidate A good/candidate B bad" stuff really pathetic.
So, I'm going to break the mould and praise the candidate I am not backing!
Nick Clegg has done a brilliant thing with his pledge to lead a campaign of civil disobedience against ID cards. This is precisely the sort of principled and uncompromising stand which we need to highlight the true liberalism of our party to the general public.
Well done Nick!
