ABSTRACT
NOW that the Lib Dems have plummeted into fourth place behind Ukip in the opinion polls, Calamity Clegg has come up with a hardly original wheeze � recruiting a spin doctor to 'build the profile and credibility of the Liberal Democrats through securing broader and more relevant coverage in magazines and lifestyle publications'. And the price of credibility? A salary of �18,000. Should we be expecting to see Cleggy's high-flying wife Miriam offering her household tips in Hello! next month?
