In Praise of the Guardian: Finding strengths in Nick Clegg
23 May 2011 1 Comment
Today the Guardian writes NHS shakeup: From malignant to muddled and outlines the difference Clegg has made in government. It shows some strengths for Clegg which are worth highlighting:
Nick Clegg is making a real difference. These are not common words to read these days, and yet they are becoming hard to dispute with the stalled English health reforms. It is true that the deputy prime minister would be better placed to claim credit if he had not initially nodded Andrew Lansley’s bill through, and true, too, that not all the sweeping concessions he now demands fit with the scepticism about the NHS he has sometimes shown in the past. Nonetheless, Mr Clegg has responded decisively to his party’s democratic will, and is training his sights on the heart of the Lansley plans.
