Nick Clegg for leader of the LibDems?

The picture on the left shows Lib Dem home affairs spokesman Nick Clegg with the words "Trust in People" in the background. Should it say "Don't trust him Ming"?

When asked about his future intentions, Nick said "if you are asking me would I stand against Ming, the answer is no".
However in the next breath he said "if there was a vacancy in the future then I probably would".

He went on to say: "At a time when Sir Ming is being attacked with barely disguised ageism... the only response is to pull together, put up two fingers and say, don't you dare push us around."

Very honourable indeed Nick, but is there any real need to point out that your party leader is under constant attack, whilst saying you will be there to pick up the pieces should he step down?

UPDATE: Ming's wife Lady Elspeth was caught on camera challenging Nick Clegg by saying: "I don't know whether you are being helpful or not." A reportedly shame-faced Clegg told her: "I'm trying to be."

Of course you are Nick, of course you are.
