So the party leaders are no doubt in fraught discussion with advisors, civil servants and whatever. But in quieter moments, what might they be listening to on their iPods? I’ve come up with some probables for Brown, Clegg and Cameron.
My choice for Cameron is Coldplay’s ‘The Scientist’, primarily for the lines;
Nobody said it was easy,
No-one ever said it would be this hard…
and also because I hate both the Conservatives and Coldplay in roughly equal measure.
Brown? I think he’ll be all over a bit of Phil Collins.
And Clegg? Man, he’s just rockin’ out!
