Nick Clegg’s Day to Forget

Nick Clegg is having a bit of a shocker today. Call Clegg went as badly as ever, with Nick Ferrari listing unqualified teachers from the LibDem leader’s own school days.

“But you were taught by people who didn’t have these qualifications? Mr Cogan your English teacher? Do you remember Mr Cogan? A former Royal Marine. He didn’t have this relevant piece of paper. A gentleman called David Cook. I don’t know if you remember Mr Cook. Mr Cook studied history. He was at Westminster, he as in charge of tuition into Oxford and Cambridge. He didn’t have the piece paper. Theo Zinn who was a classics teacher, do you remember Mr Zinn at your school? Remember Mr Zinn, fantastic classics teacher who often would ignore the books on the A level curriculum if there were ones he thought were better for the pupils.”

Which was pretty awkward. Next up was Clegg’s speech on free schools. Where he invited ridicule by deviating from his chosen subject and confessing he doesn’t think his mobile phone is being tapped by a foreign power, a la Merkel. Well obviously.

Best left to Lord Sugar to sum up Clegg’s week:

To which Clegg hit back this morning:

“He’s slightly thin-skinned. He drives around in this great big Bentley on primetime television, he wafts around the House of Lords in ermine, and then he seems to be very offended when I point out that he has got a bob or two. I don’t see why someone like him should be entitled to a winter fuel payment. No doubt, having said that, I will get another torrent of classic Sugar tweet-abuse this morning.”

Going well then…

Quote of the Day

A senior Brexiter:

“If Theresa and Julian have sold us out here they are in real trouble. She reassured us all at the 1922. There is no way she can recover if she has now fucked us over.”
