Feedback on Nick Clegg, Lib Dem conference

 

    You would be forgiven for having missed it, even if you live in the UK, but the last 5 days have seen the Liberal Democrats hold their annual conference in Bournemouth.

They've announced some interesting policies although their leader, Nick Clegg's proposal to cut 6p off income tax seems out of alignment with a rapidly increasing belief in regulation and the role of the state.

Clegg's speech today seems to have gone down well - a good imitation of David Cameron (with autocue) - and has helped delegates forget his pensions blunder yesterday.  So, as long as he doesn't bother too many people with his robo-calls tonight, his party could be looking slightly up in the polls.

But what do you think?  I'm hoping shortly to give you (as someone who is most likely to be interested in leadership potential) an opportunity to rate Clegg as a possible prime minister, along with Cameron and Brown.
