Clegg will plead a hung council when he addresses MPs today. "People mostly ask me what the Liberal Democrats will do after the ubiquitous election. Some days I review we"re formulation a understanding with Labour, a little days that we"re formulation a understanding with the Conservatives, alternative days that we"ll exclude to speak to any one at all," he is reported as formulation to say.
