      They say Nick is not a bad guy. It’s just that he is lazy and hopes that things will go away if he ignores them.

      Now Miriam is a different person altogether, everyone around here is scared of her including nice Nick.

          The Nick Clegg Phone-In, live on LBC 97.3 FM

          NICK CLEGG: Hello, this is the Nick Clegg phone in. What have you got to say caller. Er, is that Chris from Westminster?

          CALLER 1: CHRISTINE RENNARD OF WESTMINSTER: No Nick this is, er, Christine, my voice is a bit hoarse. Don’t you agree that it is shocking and distressing that the Lib Dems are the only 21st century party that supports the inalienable right of every portly gentleman over 50 to lovingly grope, I mean caress, us young females, especially when they work for me, I mean for you?

          NICK CLEGG: Well Christine, of course the Lib Dems are right to support all such gestures of affection, but only so long as the lady concerned can be bullied, promoted or paid off and if the gentleman concerned is not a Conservative. By the way your voice sounds suspiciously like a Lord I know, are you sure you are a lady?

          CALLER 2: MIKE HANDCOCK: Hi Nick, I’m Mike Handcock, the Lib Dem MP for Portsmouth South. I agree completely with the last caller. In fact, I was saying to my attractive young Russian assistant the other day, “Isn’t it wonderful that you never shop me for indulging in such acts of affection.”.

          CALLER 3: MARK OF OATEN: Hi Nick, thanks for letting me speak, first time caller. Don’t you agree that it is shocking and distressing that the Lib Dems are the only modern and accountable party to support the right of every decent man to lovingly engage in unspeakable 3-in-a-bed acts with rent boys and to promote the teaching of such in schools?

          NICK CLEGG: Mark, you are of course right,the Lib Dems are the only party to support such individuals but we are confident that our coalition partners the Conservatives are moving that way as well.

          NICK CLEGG: Hello caller, Nick Clegg here.

          CALLER 4: PADDY FROM PANTSDOWN: Hi Nick, good of me to speak to you. You agree with me, of course, that it is shocking and distressing that the Lib Dems are the only democratic party to support the right of every decent man to engage in affectionate pantsdown activities with women who are not their wives. And finally, when are ya goin to let me give that lovely wife of yours a good…

          NICK CLEGG: I think Paddy got cut off there, but, yes Paddy, only reactionary dinosaurs believe in these ghastly Victorian marriage vows. We and our coalition partners are successfully trying to destroy the institution of marriage.

          NICK CLEGG: Hello caller, Nick Clegg here.

          CALLER 5: CHRIS H.: Hi Nick, it is shocking and distressing that the Lib Dems are the only party to support the right of every decent man to affectionately coerce their wives to take their speeding points for them.

          NICK CLEGG: Yes Chris, being a modern party, we strongly support the right of every Lib Dem MP to ignore any laws they don’t like. But this can only happen in a fair and accountable society if the little people below us obey those same laws to prevent anarchy and also if they give us more of their pay to keep us in the democratic, subsidised life styles we deserve.

          NICK CLEGG: Hello caller what have you got to say.

          CALLER 6: JEREMY THORPE: Nick, isn’t it shocking and distressing that the Lib Dems are the only gay-friendly party that supports the loving acts of attempted assassination between one loving consensual male and another in a consensual way?

          NICK CLEGG: Yes, the Lib Dems are the only party loony enough to believe this.

          NICK CLEGG: Hello caller Nick Clegg here.

          CALLER 7: DAVID LAWS: Hello Nick, I feel it is shocking and distressing that more MPs are not allowed to lovingly rob the taxpayer via fraudulent expenses claims and then lovingly give it to their landlord boyfriend.

          NICK CLEGG: David you are right but the Lib Dems and the Conservatives have demonstrated how progressive they are by allowing such people to go unpunished and even promoting them to high office.

          NICK CLEGG: Hello caller you’re through to Nick Clegg.

          CALLER 8: P.C.PLOD: Is it the case that you did knowingly conspire in the procurement of young and impressionable, silly girls and did knowingly allow them to be coerced into situations of sexual exploitation by an over-aged multiple chinned deviant?

          NICK CLEGG: Yes, that is Lib Dem policy. Also, we strongly condemn self-appointed detectives in the press who notice this and hopefully they will be locked up when our Leveson proposals become law.

          CALLER 8: P.C.PLOD: OK sunshine, get yer trousers on, you’re nicked.

          Nick Clegg is a CUNT says:


          • The Central Scrutinizer says:

            He thinks that women boxing is an achievement…! What an arse. It’s a disgrace not an achievement. As is the attempt to put women in the front line on the battlefield, less capable (but comp educated) kids into the limited places available at Oxford and Cambridge – and all the other PC, equality blather that all modern day politicians harp on about.

            I am pleased to see him being hung, drawn and quartered by his own hypocrisy and PC bullshit.

            Fact. Guys of all ages sometimes flirt with women.

            Fact. All women know it – and deal with it. In fact, many women use their female charms to get men to do what they want.

            Shock horror. Stop Press. Someone call the cops…!

            This is the type of idot that democratic party politics has ensured that we get nowadays.

    The ancient Clegg Family Motto is:

    So, loose the dogs! It’s almost as if Liberal Democrats are genetically unable to be truthful.

    What does ‘in the background’ mean here?

    Does it mean he brought up the allegations with Rennard or not? And If he didn’t why not? If he did why not say so originally?

    Got to admire the way Nick Clegg operates in defensive mode there. Takes position with thighs well apart. Slight feint during run up then traps opponent’s boot firmly between goolies. Absolutely masterful.

    Curiously, I found Damian McBride to be well informed and lucid about his time in No. 10. I only saw parts of it but I was struck with this impression several times in the different segments I saw.

    Now he was talking about process rather than policy. But it is still curious how the political process corrupts our impressions of everyone involved. And his boss created the biggest fuck up we have ever seen.

    Norman Smith of the BBC.
    Tell us about the redaction in the BBC report.
    Tell us about the deaths at Stafford Hospital.
    Tell us about why the Chilcot report is taking so long.
    Tell us about why the Andrew Mitchell issue is taking so log to report.
    Could some journalist/editor at the BBC do some serious work, instead of easy pickings over Clegg and Rennard. We know Clegg is not up to much, and we know that Rennard has probably fiddled about, but reporting on this once or twice a day would be enough.
    The BBC and it’s dumbed down reporters should give the license fee payer value for money, and provide decent reporting, not endless looping of the same easy target crap.

    What a slippery shit Clegg is. Giving Blair a run for his money on evasive answers and double speak.


  36. 75
    Cringle says:

    Presumably parliament is going to introduce legislation to control the media precisely to prevent the public finding out about issues like this which are an embarrassment to them. My guess is that the Telegraph exposure of MP expenses would never have been allowed. MPs lead colourful lives and would prefer to keep these aspects from the public.
    However they will not be able to control the internet totally so stories will still get out and they will not be able to control foreign media who will take the place of UK media for these stories.

    Seaside Sally says:

    does anyone know if there is a Mrs Rennard. He is one hell of a looker and it gets
    very lonely down here in the South in winter,especially with Mike Handycock now in his sick bed.Just asking

    Daed Parrot, That was brilliant and probably the finest comment I have ever read on here, you only forgot St. Vince trying to chat up 2 Daily Telegraph reporters. If only we could put it up on a poster in Eastleigh this afternoon !
    Would it be possible to find out exactly what health issues Chris Rennard had, that caused him to resign ? It sounds as though they might have been a little spurious.

    Isn’t the phone-in meant for the public – a rare chance for people, as opposed to agenda-riven churnalists, to put questions to a politician?
