The Financial Times has an important interview with Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg.  Mr Clegg sets out the kind of policy priorities that could persuade him and his party to support a Cameron-led minority government.  He emphasises civil liberties, education reforms, the environment and more local decision-making.  Mr Clegg’s willingness to talk in these terms contrasts hugely with the stance of his predecessor.  Ming Campbell only seemed interested in what would be necessary to deal with Labour (much to Paul Goodman’s delight at the time).
