Nick Clegg is really the fucking worst of the British political system. The Tories at least are a known quantity, all they want is power and to make life gradually worse for everyone else. However, six years ago, Clegg and the Lib Dems had a real opportunity to rein in the Tories- which they didn't; NHS reform without a mandate, tuition fee increases, bedroom tax, it seemed all they got was a half-hearted electoral reform referendum, plus some smatterings of power. He was willing to compromise every liberal belief to keep himself and the Tories in power.
Here we are, the Tories have a majority and Tim fucking Farron is leading the centre ground charge; Charles Kennedy is doing cartwheels in his grave. The only positive about Brexit, really, is how it must've made Clegg feel; that sharp prang of failure, the fact that a public once swept up in Cleggmania had rejected one of Clegg and his party's central beliefs. Feeling shit was the general mood of living under the coalition government, it's fair Clegg got a dose of it.
Anyhow, he's on Have I Got News For You this Friday. The ultimate humiliation for Clegg?
