For all their woolly policies, the LibDem are dirty fighters, as anyone who has seen them campaign will attest. So it was only a matter of time before its leadership election turned vicious. Chris Huhne has dropped off press releases demanding that his rival Nick Clegg seeks corrections from newspapers who have suggested he’s in favour of education vouchers. Clegg repudiated the idea of vouchers, says Huhne, at a hustings meeting last weekend. All this, of course, makes me all the more favourably inclined towards Clegg. There’s nothing illiberal about school vouchers, and the idea chimes squarely with localism and empowering people rather than the state. It’s ideas like this that would get the LibDems back in the game. The Tories should hope Huhne wins.
