First they ignore you...

Day 1 of being a Liberal Democrat has brought some amazing stories.

First off, Nick Clegg has been attacked by the Telegraph for being entirely open and transparent about his finances.

If that wasn't good enough, 5Live this morning reported that Nick has also been attacked for writing this excellent article for the Guardian in 2002. Anyone who thinks they have a problem with that article should read it first and then decide if they are not really Basil Fawlty.

I have to say that I didn't expect such a violent reaction to the revelation that I (and many others) have joined the UK fastest-growing political party, but we can always take heart from the words of Gandhi (I think):

"First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win."
