Two apparently unrelated items from Nick Clegg’s speech at the Liberal Democrats’ party congress: First the BBC quoted his exhortation to the party soldiers, that they should
go to the next election with their “heads held high”.
Then came his announcement of
the first national waiting time targets for people with mental health problems.
People with depression should begin “talking therapy” treatments within 18 weeks, from April.
Let’s see: If the depressed Liberal Democrats can get their talk therapy started in April, maybe they’ll hold their heads a bit higher by the 7 May election.
