Remember this press stunt before the election. Nick Clegg declares "We will not have to raise VAT to deliver our promises ... Let me repeat that: Our plans do not require a rise in VAT".
In order to get into government, Clegg and his Tory-supporting LibDems have agreed an increase in VAT to 20% from next January.
Pre-election Clegg also said "It is time for the Conservatives to come clean ... without decimating schools, hospitals and police forces across the country."
Er, Nick, that's what they - and YOU - are doing. Haven't you noticed?
