Nick Clegg publishes Nectar points statement

NICK Clegg has made public his Sainsbury’s Nectar account in a bid for transparency over his finances.

The document, which runs to almost seven pages, lists his purchases for the last three years, mostly from the motorway services just south of Sheffield.

The former ‘deputy prime minister’ said: “I am happy to answer any questions on this matter, or any other matter. Seriously, I’ll even do LBC.”

Financial analysts are comparing his purchases of scotch eggs and grab bags of Maltesers in 2014 to see if there is any correlation with policies he supported while in the coalition.

However, Clegg has been criticised for his partial disclosure by the one person who read it and has been asked to confirm how many stamps he has on his Starbucks card.
