Nick Clegg: Always Number Two

It’s Friday, so Guido’s going to share this one:

“Last year Nick Clegg pushed past me to go to the toilet on the train and the person inside hadn’t pressed the button to lock the door. Imagine the terrified look of the person sitting there doing their business, when 1) the automatic door slowly opened 2) the person standing in the doorway was Nick Clegg. I tried to diffuse everyone’s embarrassment by remarking on the poor interface design of the toilet locking system, then Nick marched off past me to find another toilet – in a direction I knew for a fact there were no more toilets. A minute later he came back sheepishly and sat back down again. I guess he just held it in for the rest of the journey.”

The innocent bystander telling the story would like to make it clear that no physical pushing took place, merely an inadvertent queue jump. For which Nick is no doubt very, very sorry…
