According to the media, Nick Clegg and Chris Huhne have both been naughty boys.
Apparently Chris Huhne possibly (with the emphasis on possibly) put his name to an article in the 1970's asking for people to be more tolerant of some drug use, notably LSD. Whilst Nick Clegg set fire to some cacti in Germany when he was 16 years old.
Surely these are both strengths to talk about, not hide. To put this in to perspective, Chris Huhne wrote an article (possibly), nothing more, nothing less. Unlike David Cameron, who prefers not to mention anything in his past associated with drugs, Chris can argue that in the 1970's he was already preaching tolerance and understanding, two very liberal virtues.
Whilst Nick Clegg can argue that they we were pinning medals on people fifty years ago for being what he did in Germany. And let's face it, setting fire to some plants hardly constitutes a hanging offence.
No, if these two stories are the very worst that people have on them, then we ought, as a party, be very pleased with ourselves.
