Clegg Doesn’t Deny Queen Backs Brexit

Tomorrow’s Sun claims the Queen “spoke with venom and emotion” during a bust-up with Nick Clegg in which she apparently backed Brexit. This is Clegg’s very carefully worded response:

Fine. But I really can’t remember it at all. Anyway, without sounding pompous, I find it rather distasteful to reveal conversations with the Queen.”

Not an outright denial…
