Surprise, surprise – Menzies Campbell doesn't sound 100% taken with the coalition in interview with Andrew Neil on Straight Talk this weekend.  This is, don't forget, the man who encouraged the Lib Dems to seek a deal with Labour at the last minute.  And here he claims that he "would have found it very difficult to make the kind of arrangement with David Cameron that Nick Clegg has obviously found so easy."  He adds that:

"...there is this determination to make [the coaltion] work and nowhere is that more obvious than in David Cameron and Nick Clegg.  I mean, they are quite extraordinary, the extent to which their views coincide and you know that old thing about how people with dogs come to look like their dogs, well, people with coalition partners come to look like their coalition partners, I mean, they could be brothers."
