In Praise of the Independent: Finding strengths in Nick Clegg

The Independent write At last, a politician fluent in European in which they offer some praise for Nick Clegg which is worth reading:

But the Deputy Prime Minister had one of his finest hours when he went to Berlin to speak on Europe and then presented the same case – for the benefits of the European Union and why Britain had to play a full part in it… Nick Clegg has the knowledge, the experience and the vocabulary to speak not just with conviction and sympathy, but in a way that can be readily understood. This makes him almost unique: a senior British politician capable of making a compelling case for Europe. As Tory Eurosceptics sense the wind in their sails, he should do this more often. Nick Clegg may just have found his role.

    ..if Clegg says something people expect the opposite.. no one trusts this lying two-faced Judas.. Clegg will cling to the coalition as once it is over he is finished.. then it’s jobs for the boys..

      Change the record Andy, this one is pretty boring by now. Remember this, “Minds are like parachutes – they only work when they are open”.
