Is he Clegg, or is he Kilroy?
Nick Clegg must have time on his hands, and a thick hide. How else to explain the gleeful announcement from LBC, a radio station with a weekly audience of 927,000, that the Deputy Prime Minister has agreed to make a half hour appearance every week, starting at 9.00 am on Thursday, for a live phone-in. He can expect some hostile questions.
The announcement has prompted the Labour MP, John Mann, to liken Mr Clegg to Robert Kilroy-Silk, who went from being a disgruntled Labour MP to a career in broadcasting, followed by an undistinguished term as a maverick MEP for the East Midlands. “He looks like Kilroy, he sounds like Kilroy, he acts like Kilroy. Both were invisible as East Midlands MEPs. In fact where is Kilroy? Is he Kilroy in disguise?” Mann inquired.Tagged in: kilroy, LBC, nick clegg, PM
