He's a mighty good leader*

Nick Clegg was apparently cleaning windows in my constituency yesterday. He said 'I'm not pretending that coming to clean a few windows is going to change people's lives'.


*Beck. I could of course have gone with Loser, 'In a town of chimpanzees I was a monkey', but that would have been cruel and unwarranted. And I'm saving it for someone else.

That video footage has been heavily edited to give a competely misleading impression. The uncut, original video is on YouTube. What you don't see is that the first part of each encounter has been excised.

I’m surprised that a professional politician was na├»ve enough to fall for it.

The edited footage dishonestly suggests that the photo is shown to randomly chosen ‘men in the street'.

In fact they only used Lib Dem supporters.

A bit obvious, but I would have gone with 'Who Are You?' or 'When I'm Cleaning Windows'

at least he impressed someone.

Just saw this elsewhere and, with appropriate modification, felt it was apposite here:

"Of course, that does raise the old philosphical chestnut: if a Lib Dem silently keels over in the woods, is he actually dead?..."
