    Nick Clegg is a presentable politician whose polls numbers spiked temporarily after a good debate performance (theyve now fallen back a bit). He is not a great original thinker, he hasn't brought any new talent into politics, and some of his policies are donright bizarre (for example as a former employee of the EU he is probably one of about three people who still think the Euro was a good idea.) The liberals had been steadily gaining ground in England for a long time, driven by demographic changes - the decline of employment in manufacturing and the gentrification of some traditional labour areas. Also please note his party is not new at all. It ruled Britain for much of the 19th century. It is the labour party here that was an aberration, normal service (liberal vs conservative) is now being resumed.
