Nick Clegg On TV "spectacularly wrong"

This morning I watched Nick Clegg on the Politics show, and now theres an hour long interview now on ITV. This publicity is priceless, but what message is Nick giving?

I have heard something on his policies, but nothing on the environment, or even PR. He did better than Gordon Brown on the politics show but thats not saying much. He couldn't answer some questions, I doubt he converted anyone. He got tied in knots over the fuel tax and immigration. Its on iplayer. Soon we will have the leader debates, perhaps he will improve.

LibDems make lots of noise about young peoples criminal behaviour such as Graffiti. Do they know he set fire to a precious plant collection when he was younger? They will now. He had to do some community service.

There was no mention of his pensions gaffe, he said the basic state pension was just £30. The true figures then were £90.70 a week for a single person and £145.45 for a couple. Mr Clegg later told the BBC News Channel he had got it "spectacularly wrong".

No mention of the four Liberal Democrat MPs; Richard Younger-Ross, John Barrett, Sandra Gidley and Paul Holmes, guilty of a “serious misjudgment” concerning dodgy rent agreements.

Apparently he wrote a thesis on the political philosophy of the Deep Green movement!

A year after joining the LD he was an MEP. At his frst try he became an MP for Sheffield.
There are clearly some differences between the LD and the Green Party, every position, even a cllr, takes years of hard work. If he had worked hard for it, he would be more experienced and better able to answer questions.
