Clearly punters think that Clegg is likely to pitch up in Birmingham in October and address the Conservative faithful.
It would be an interesting move that I suspect would not go down well with some Lib Dems. The question is though is it the right thing for him to do? Paul Goodman on Con Home last month suggested it would be and may help to foster Conservative/Lib-Dem links of the type that exist in abundance between Labour/Lib-Dem.
I think it would certainly be a way for Clegg to underline the fact that we are in a new political era. It would be fascinating to see what sort of reception he got. I suspect there would be a fair few Tory cabinet ministers who may also resent the focus Clegg would undoubtedly get were he to do this.
A related question is whether Cameron would deign to address the Lib Dem conference. That would come before the Tory one so Cameron would have a chance to steal Clegg's thunder by cross-dressing first! I wonder if he might just take the opportunity.
I am interested to hear what others think about this. Should Clegg address the Tories and/or should Cameron address the Lib Dems?
