Party leaderships are always positive, whatever the reality might look like. It is in the job description, got to raise moral (or at least try to).

Every single one apart from one that is, Step Forward Nick Clegg.

risibly so...

which leads to them staying in the bubble even more, making them ever further out of touch with reality on the ground.
