“Although he will protest to anyone listening that he is in this relationship against his will, we have noticed him starting to find new excuses that will allow him to remain Cameron’s bed fellow.”
But Nick Clegg has said he has not been making excuses for why he has been stuck in, what he called, a forced coalition.

When asked if he will walk away from Cameron now the forced union has been made illegal he said he would try. He then started stroking a picture of the prime minister saying he thinks he has Stockholm syndrome.
