Meejah studies, lesson 2

Funny, wasn't it, how, coincidentally, on the eve of the 2nd leaders' debate, several national newspapers of a right-of-centre inclination had Clegg-bashing front pages. I mean obviously, given the surge in support for the Lib Dems, there was going to be greater scrutiny of their leader. But odd how all of them decided to go big on him on the same day.

Nick Robinson thought there was nothing in it, then changed his mind:
Update 1939: I now learn that political reporters from the Tory-backing papers were called in one by one to discuss how Team Cameron would deal with "Cleggmania" and to be offered Tory HQ's favourite titbits about the Lib Dems - much of which appears in today's papers.
