After talking vividly about how 'different' Clegg and Cameron are, and how the ideology between both parties will 'jar' it is clear Farron is still upset at losing his parties Deputy Leadership race. During the budget speech Farron sat completely separate from his colleagues who clearly snubbed him to back Simon Hughes as deputy leader.
At the end of the interview Farron remarked "It's very very odd to be sitting amongst a group of people I spent 20-odd years fighting against." - Sorry Tim, but get used to it! How could it possibly be any other way, The Liberals cant have it all ways, they LOST the election in real terms, yet they keep demanding the earth, accept what you have and feel lucky to finally get your opinions heard. And thinking about his comment, Yes he did spend 20 years fighting against the Tories, but he also spent 20 years fighting against Labour - surely a coalition with Labour would still mean he would be sat 'with people he'd been fighting against for 20 years'.
I will never understand certain Libdem's refusal to accept this is how things are, this is what the electorate voted for, I'm sorry that you didn't get an outright majority - which would never EVER happen anyway, so there has to be a bit of give and take, well a lot of give and take, on both sides. Why Libdem's think they are entitled to everything, and above everybody else when they are a small, minority and losing party just goes beyond me.
