The Guardian writes Making the Tories a bit less nasty won’t save Clegg’s skin which highlights some strengths for the Lib Dems which is interesting in tat it shows the strategy the Lib Dems took a while ago is paying off
The negotiations in recent weeks over Andrew Lansley’s botched NHS reforms have shown that not only are the Lib Dems finally conducting themselves as an independent party but that it is succeeding. That is a message not just coming from inside Clegg’s camp. Cameron’s strategy chief, Andrew Cooper, was, I am told, telling his boss to give the Lib Dems whatever they wanted on the issue. The Lansley reforms were risking the so-called detoxification of the Tory brand, Cooper told ministers.
