Miriam: Dave “Still Doesn’t Get It”

After Dave’s Davos admission yesterday Mrs Clegg crows on Insta:

“In addition to the serious negative economic consequences for young people in the country, the already obvious loss of international influence by the UK is a disaster, not just a mistake. Really hard to understand how come he still does not get it…”

Think it’s Miriam who still doesn’t get it…

Miriam Forgets She Wrote the Book on WTO Regulation

“There is nothing in the WTO about regulation,” Miriam Durantez said on the Daily Politics earlier. Which is a slightly curious comment given she wrote a book on WTO regulation called “Regulatory Aspects of the WTO Telecoms Agreements”. To be fair, sounds forgettable.

Miriam: “Two Sides” to Gibraltar

Miriam Clegg, who is being used increasingly by TV producers as an ‘expert’ pro-Remain talking head, made some revealing comments on Gibraltar on Mair this morning. She reckons there are “two sides” to the dispute and defended Spain’s apparently “conciliatory tone”. Brave tactic for the wife of Britain’s chief zombie Remainer. The only “two sides” are the right one and the wrong one…

Miriam Goes Off Message

Miriam Durantez Gonzalez, the arch-Europhile aka Mrs Clegg, blasts Cameron’s renegotiation and warns Brussels is not reforming:

“The European Union is crying for reform. Proper reform. Not that Mickey Mouse negotiation that the Prime Minister did. The biggest reform that the EU needs is growth… In my life I have never gone through another moment when I have thought we are in the history books.”

This is the renegotiation Cameron is asking you to vote on – and even Miriam says it’s Mickey Mouse…

Mrs Clegg Cashing in on Brexit

Clegg Brexit

While Nick Clegg is tweeting away about why we should all vote to Remain, his wife is cashing in on the prospect of Brexit. Miriam Gonzalez Durantez, a top lawyer and trade expert at Dechert, is offering advice on how companies can respond if we Leave. Under the headline: “BREXIT? Are you prepared?”, her pitch says:

“Companies need to make the most of the little time they have to understand the immediate and long-term regulatory and economic impact that any vote to leave may have on their business… Dechert’s International Trade and EU law team offers not only high quality legal analysis which understands the commercial pressures… Our team also has extensive experience in various parts of the UK Government prior to joining Dechert, including HM Treasury and the Prime Minister’s Office that help to provide a unique perspective”

The extra business will come in handy considering Nick only earns a £9,000 an hour speaking at Goldman Sachs…

Miriam Clegg Loves Pig’s Head

Nick Clegg’s wife Miriam Gonzalez Durantez has published a curious recipe on her food blog this week: “Pig’s Cheeks in Wine Sauce”. Miriam says the best way to make the recipe is by “roasting a whole pig’s head“. If you don’t fancy using a pig head, Mrs Clegg says buying pig cheeks from the butchers will do just fine.

“Salt the cheeks, dust them with flour and fry them in the olive oil on both sides until they get golden (a couple of minutes on each side). Take them off the pan and reserve them. Then add all the vegetables, fry them for 5 minutes over medium heat, add the checks, pour the wine and water, wait until there are bubbles in the sauce, cover with a lid, reduce the heat and let it simmer for 1 hour. Then add the vinegar and let it simmer for another 45 minutes. The result should be really tender, buttery meat with a thick sauce.”

Interesting timing…

Miliband Beats His Wife

As does Farage.

But Miriam Clegg really thrashes Nick in the Daily Mail poll of Leaders vs Spouses

Quote of the Day

Boris on Osborne and Project Fear:

Unemployment has fallen by 250,000 to a new low of 4.2 per cent while record numbers of jobs have been created – including no fewer than 8 for the former chancellor and chief architect of project fear who has become a glorious living rebuttal of his own preposterous warnings.”
