Farron - Whose Side Is He On?

. We all know the apocryphal story of the MP who pushes out his chest and tells a large crowd: 'These are my principles and if you don't like 'em . . .' - at which point, the crowd starts heckling. Speedily altering tack, the MP continues: '. . . and if you don't like 'em, I can change 'em for other principles.' Normally, this would be seen as a sceptical (if horribly true) observation about the elasticity of our politicians. They'd sell their souls to get elected, huh? But in the case of Tim Farron, it is more serious than that. Selling his soul may be precisely what it feels like to the Liberal Democrats' pink-faced young leader. This is his first general election in charge and, poor man, he is making a hash of it, writes QUENTIN LETTS.
