Following a torrid year in government, Nick Clegg has faced down his party’s conference
without any embarrassing policy reversals. Disaffected Lib Dems might be placated by the
string of promises laid out by the party’s big brass, which will be unpalatable to their
partners in government, but if a week is a long time in politics, Nick Clegg has a painfully
long fight against the threat of end of season relegation yet to come, argues Matt Cole.
