Nick Clegg is finally doing the clever thing and openly talking about backing the Tories in coalition. I'm in a BBC studio waiting to do News24 paper review, and just have the FT's front page. But it quotes him saying that he: 

"...could back a minority Tory government if David Cameron proposes genuine 'liberal' reforms." 

Now, I don't believe him for a minute but it gives him more leverage with Brown to flirt with Cameron.
