The Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, made a well-trailed speech on Monday in which he offered egregious comments on the House of Lords. The speech, not surprisingly, has gone down like a lead balloon in the Lords, including among many Liberal Democrat peers. He was at it again yesterday during Deputy Prime Minister’s Questions in the House of Commons.
Readers are invited to read both his speech and his responses yesterday in the Commons (read the whole of the Deputy Prime Minister’s period and not just the section on the Lords). There will be a Christmas present for the reader to spot the most inconsistencies and errors.
