'Thank you, Martin. His position is looking less tenable with every passing day. He spoke for hours and seemed completely out of touch with reality, oblivious to the widespread unrest. He droned on for so long, even some of his staunchest supporters couldn't stifle their yawns. Many had quite clearly lost faith in him and were looking anxiously about, ready to switch sides when the revolt became too much. Myself and other journalists were allowed to interview him.

"There have been no riots, no demonstrations" he said, adamantly.
"Did you see any?" he asked.
"Where?" asked the leader.

"They were demonstrating for me, yes?"
"No. They were demonstrating against you."
"Nonsense. My people love me. They need me. In any case, I have no official role, so I can't stand down. It would make no difference" said Nick Clegg.
