Ken Clarke: Cynical, Desperate

Just four days ago, Nick Clegg condemned the deplorable scare-mongering of senior Conservatives over the prospect of a hung Parliament:

Cynical, desperate, the Tories think they’re entitled to victory – the moment they feel it slipping from their grasp, they start lashing out.

It’s a political version of the protection racket – do what we want, or else.

Ken Clarke’s proved once again just how desperate and cynical the Tories are:

The electorate will bring upon themselves the consequences of financial panic if they produce a hung parliament or a Labour minority government. It would be catastrophic.

It’s a good job that 44 per cent of the electorate disagree with Mr Clarke, with only 29 per cent hoping to see him and his fellow desperate cynics in Government.
