Nick Clegg can thank perceptions

The difference between Nick Clegg and the rest is the difference between perception and reality. Despite being the mirror image of another disaster who made it to the top job, Nick has seen a surge in his popularity.

The reason's the same as that of Barack. The Conservative and Labour party is stark in public memory. Liberal Democrat isn't. That bodes well for Nick. Because the utopian perfection that he paints, though an illusion, is believable as it operates in perceptual territory.

Barack Obama was the very same illusion who won because of perceptions. Reality as it now unfolds in the US is proving to be acutely unpalatable. After the US, its now Britain's turn.
