The Lib Dems are back

What an initial impact there has been since Nick Clegg was given the opportunity to appear with Brown and Cameron in the first leadership debate on ITV.

The polls that have appeared in the days since the debate have all shown a) Clegg benefitted massively b) it has shaken up the election completely.

I suspect this is all soft support, but if he can keep these floating voters then who knows what will happen on election day.

Clegg will find it harder now as the big guns are turned on the Lib Dems and the scrutiny begins. It will also be harder to shine in the second debate on foreign affairs.

But he has made the most of his opportunity and given Brown and Cameron a lot to think about.

Game on all round.

Stands for defence solicitor call centre. Its a national system for allocating police station clients to firms.

Last week the contractor changed. The system crashed and it was utter chaos. Will there ever be a time when a government contract involving IT actually works?

It was a joke.
