Clegg basically resigns
NICK Clegg has basically resigned from everything he does.
The self-styled deputy prime minister and leader of the Liberal Democrats will continue to ‘hold’ his titles, but he will not ‘be’ them.
The move came as Mr Clegg admitted that he should have gone into coalition with Labour and that he has absolutely no idea what he is doing.
He told The House magazine: “It’s all wrong, isn’t it?
“I think I might have suspected it was wrong at the time, but everyone kept saying ‘do this, do that’ and so I just went along with it because I had no experience and it was quite obvious that no-one was going to listen to a word I said.
“From the very beginning it was clear to me that I had no credibility, authority or intellect. I remember at the end of my first week sitting down at my desk and thinking ‘I’m just a haircut in a suit’.
“The blame for this lies squarely with the British people. Why would they vote for someone like that?”
He added: “I’m actually thinking of joining the Labour Party. I wonder if I could be a sort of caretaker deputy prime minister and a member of the shadow cabinet at the same time. I honestly don’t think anyone would mind.”
A Downing Street spokesman said: “Yeah… we’re probably not going to phone him any more.”
