Whatever the final outcome of all the negotiations, some skill in relating well to other people and some care to do this over time has put David Cameron and Nick Clegg in the position where they seem to have the best chance of forming a stable government, whereas those that have taken less care over their relationships are leaving the stage. There are lessons in that for us all.
I was very struck by Nick Robinson saying that David Cameron and Nick Clegg get on better with each other than either gets on with Gordon Brown. I suspect it’s all going to turn on that. Relationships are that significant. If Gordon Brown had taken more care over these things, the outcome might have been different.
