Cleggie squirms as Andrew Neil details his expenses and LibDem aide leaves details of Nick’s debate strategy in a taxi cab.
Nick Clegg squirmed and stuttered as he was monstered over his lavish expenses claims by Andrew Neil. Neil pointed out that his claim is larger than those of both Brown and Cameron, and Cleggie’s excuses are weak to say the least.
See the video of the seamy scenario here. A full account of Nick’s expenses is here. In addition, a LibDem aide left a copy of Nick’s debate strategy in a taxi cab and horror of horrors, as SKY gleefully reported, one instruction was to copy David Cameron! Embarrassing. Doesn’t exactly bode well for national security either.
In the debate between the Chancellor, Vince Cable and George Osborne, Darling and Cable tried to gang up on George, insisting that Ken Clarke’s statement that a Hung Parliament was dangerous, was utterly ridiculous. George snapped to Darling “Ken Clarke was a much better Chancellor than you are!” while Darling mouthed helplessly like a goldlfish. Good man, George. That’s the spirit!
And here, Cable stammers and reddens as Andrew Neil tackles his contradictory advice and political dishonesty and piles on the pressure. Under a ruthless scrutiny, Cable buckles. The gloves are off!
UPDATE. Watch this interview where Clegg is skewered by a bunch of school kids. They tell him “We know your face, but you don’t say what you stand for!” They point out they have heard nothing about LibDem policy on tv. or in the press. He criticises but doesn’t come clean about his own beliefs. They don’t let him fob them off with moralising. They then go on to ask him about the £90K of our money that he spent on his house. “You are risking our money, not your own” says one school girl. Brilliant.
