Has Nick Clegg dumped Gordon Brown?

Nick Clegg, leader of the Liberal Democratic Party, today launched a vicious attack on Gordon Brown creating speculation that he may favour the Conservative party in a hung parliament. It has always been assumed that Nick Clegg kind would tie up with Gordon Brown, as some of their policies seem to overlap, but there is now confusion in political circles as to which way the Liberal Democrat party would lean in the case of a hung parliament.

There is no doubt that Nick Clegg and the Liberal Democrat party as a whole are making use of their newfound fame and fortune with the UK electorate. Depending upon which poll you read there can be anything between 10% and 5% between each of the three main parties. If this were to continue right up to polling day it would be almost impossible to work out which party would rule parliament because the Labour Party could finish third in the popular vote yet take most seats in the House of Commons.

If this was the case, and the third-place party effectively had minority control, there would be serious consequences for the political Constitution of the UK and changes would need to be made.
