I know the Liberal Democrats are trying to take credit for anything they like the sound of, but their rewriting of history is getting out of control. It seems that they have claimed Gladstone as a 'Liberal Democrat' on the Downing Street website.

I doubt that even Mr Gladstone could make Thursday's elections any easier for Clegg & Co - assuming that Mr Gladstone, who was once Tory MP for Newark and held sound views on economic management, would help.
