Nazis! Nazis! Run awaaaaaay!

I spotted a Daily M@!l frontpage this afternoon (available here from MailWatch - I won't send you to the M@!l itself, hawk, spit).

They really are quite frightened that the Lib Dems might tip the balance and get a coalition. It's a bit of a stretch from Clegg's actual comment* eight years ago to this sudden Nazi "news". Doesn't stink of scraping the barrel at all, oh no no no.

You gotta laugh, given the Daily M@!l's Nazi-loving history.

* The comments were made in a newspaper article by Mr Clegg in 2002 when he was a Euro MP. Written after two Germans working in a call centre in Swindon went to an industrial tribunal to protest about the abuse they suffered, it argued the British still laboured from "anti-German mania". He concluded: "All nations have a cross to bear, and none more so than Germany with its memories of Nazism. But the British cross is more insidious still. A misplaced sense of superiority, sustained by delusions of grandeur and a tenacious obsession with the last war, is much harder to shake off." [the Independent]
