Former Lib Dem leader and very current whinger Nick Clegg’s latest strop has ended with him backing Nigel Farage as our Ambassador to the US.
In his latest fit of pique, Clegg remarked that sending Nigel to Washington would be “a great idea – absolutely great idea” as it would let him “spend all his time in cocktail parties on the diplomatic circuit”.
Clegg also claimed that those who campaign against the political establishment “are not in touch with the folk they claim they’re representing – they are elitist themselves”.
Isn’t this a bit rich coming from a man who has had a law firm paying him over £10,500 for 30 minutes work, who troughed £36,660 for a speech at Barclays, and who got bunged £22,500 by Goldman Sachs for two and a half hours work?
Not so much Project Fear as Project Plutocrat.
