Is* the Mail on Sunday Nick Clegg’s Recruiting Sergeant?

Is the Mail on Sunday's back-bench trying to persuade voters to think about endorsing the Liberal Democrats? I assume so, otherwise you'd have to wonder what they meant by writing this headline for the dead tree edition of this story:

"His wife is Spanish, his mother Dutch, his father half-Russian and his spin doctor German. Is there ANYTHING British about Lib Dem leader?"

I mean, my explanation is the only one that makes sense, right?

*No. But it might as well be with this kind of tripe.
