Quote of the Day

Deputy prime minister, Nick Clegg has urged voters to resist the "lure of false patriotism", as he drew comparisons between the SNP and UKIP.  The Liberal Democrats’ leader would fight for "unity, togetherness and openness," adding: "We will give people a reason to resist the lure of false patriotism - wherever it rears its head.”

I’ll let the reknown author of War and Peace, Leo Tolstoy reply to Clegg.

"Tell people that patriotism is bad and most of them will laugh and say: ‘Yes, bad  patriotism is bad, but my patriotism is good!’ ” - Leo Tolstoy (his emphasis)
