I cannot be the only person who is concerned about Chris Huhne's apparently "negative" words used against Nick Clegg, can I ?
Did Chris Huhne really need to say "Britain does not need a 3rd Tory party" ? After all, isn't one of those questions that does not need to be said unless you are trying to imply something ?
What ammunition this will give to Labour supporters who could go around saying, if Nick Clegg wins, that the Lib Dems are becoming another Tory Party, so don't vote for them. Talk about making a rod for your own back too with the press. How many times will Chris be asked by the press, if Nick wins, "So are you a third Tory party ?"
I know supporters of Chris will say that he didn't mean it as an attack on Nick Clegg, but if it was not an attack on him then who was it aimed at ? Was Chris having a dig and Ming ?
Whoever is advising Chris ought to tell him to stay positive, gives no crumbs of encouragement to our political opponents and keep away from the negativity. After all, I think this is more likely to put people off him then make people coming flooding over to him.
P.S. I know I write yesterday that I had nothing to say about the leadership as I am totally un-aligned, but I thought this needed saying.
