Someone has found a new term to describe Nick Clegg – and it’s not an insult

Andy McSmith

Nick Clegg’s appearance yesterday morning on a radio programme with the title ‘Call Nick Clegg’ rather invited this question – “What can you call Nick Clegg, when he has already been called every insulting epithet in the English language?” Amazingly, Reform, a right wing think tank, has come up with something new. Today, they named him their ‘Reformer of the Week’, The citation praised him for having “called for a full-blown scarcity election in 2015 and said that he would be ‘gobsmacked’ if, in that context, political parties defended universal benefits for very affluent pensioners.” Well done, the Deputy Prime Minister!
