Mail continues its war on Clegg

I see this morning that the Daily Mail is continuing with its hatchet jobs on Nick Clegg. Much of what has been written is not particularly new, but I guess they're wanting to grab the attention of the people who only buy the paper on Saturday (which I believe is quite a large number).

The problem with the pieces though, is that whilst they're correct to point out that Clegg is not the plucky outsider he would like to portray, they're going about it in a rather over the top way which, as already noted by many others will probably back fire. If people think the paper is trying to unduly influence them they're more likely to say "sod you".

Hilariously today there's an implication of a possible link between Clegg and the Libyan dictator Colonel Gaddafi. The Mail is really playing with fire over Clegg.
