My admiration always goes to the individual, who decides his patriotic love and dedication to his country is worth more than petty party politics. Doing what is best for the nation, with so much determined, can be seen as pathetic and untrustworthy by political mandarins.
The eloquence and suave manner of our Deputy Prime Minister is worthy of my praise. I admire the man deeply, especially the fortitude being displayed on tuition fees. Threats of violence and intimidation is unspeakable and unforgivable. Direct action (criminal damage) solves nothing. Nick Clegg, on the other hand, seems unaffected and is trying to persuade the Liberal Democrat's that it's the country, as a whole, what matters – not a special interest group. The transition towards a governing party is difficult and inevitably you will find resistance from certain sections of voters, that's democracy after all. You cannot please everyone.
The British public admirers those who fight and stand their ground, failure might occur but at least you fought with determination in their eyes. Those who abstain and reject, fleeing criticism or crack under pressure, will be relocated to the forgotten pages of history.
Fortune favours the brave, remember that Nick. Remember it well, sir.
