In Praise of the Guardian: Finding strengths in Nick Clegg and the Lib Dems

The Guardian write Liberal Democrats and Europe: time to fight arguing that the pro-European voice needs to be heard in British politics and that the very recent tone from Clegg and the Lib Dems on the issue of Europe has been the right. They highlight some strengths in todays editorial which is worth reading:

The Lib Dems are right, therefore, to fight their corner very publiclyagainst the policy of EU disengagement which is at the core of David Cameron’s veto in Brussels last week. After an initial dither on Friday, that is clearly what the party has done over the weekend. That first dither was a mistake, understandable in a way, but not acceptable once the full implications of Mr Cameron’s 4am walkout became clear. So the Lib Dem message of positive engagement that ran through the various statements and interviews from senior party figures in and out of the government in the last 48 hours has been the right one.
