Britain's tabloids don't do dignity. A week ago the Lib Dems were portrayed as more dangerous than a night on the lash with Peter Sutcliffe and Ian Brady.
A hectic day today with Gordon Brown's resignation and both Tories and Labour losing remaining shreds of dignity by offering more "electoral reform" pledges by the minute in a bid to woo the LibDems.
Talking of which. Have you noticed how gentle and relaxed Britain's right-wing rags have turned towards Nick Clegg and the LibDems?
A week ago, Nick Clegg was a non-Brit, the collateral descendent of a Russian spy, a con, a eurocrat, a liar, a thief, a wifebeater, you name it...
Now that the Conservatives are desperately trying to cut an agreement (purely because they fucked up a double-digit lead in the last four months through sheer ineptitude), our friends at the Daily Mail, the Sun and the Express have all gone soft on the previously-hated Liberal Democrats.
No skeletons in the cupboard, no libellous revelations, no accusations of being Fred West's hidden brother.
Wait and see. In Clegg decides to prop up a "progressive alliance", guaranteed it'll be poisonous great-great-aunts and trecherous foreign wives all over again.
