Nick Clegg: Leader of the Opposition


I was mildly amused by this video in which Nick Clegg accidentally drops the c-word into an interview:

But watching it, what seems more out of place is that Clegg is speaking as a government minister. With all the hoo-hah about the NHS bill recently, it’s almost been as if we have a Conservative government on one side of the House and, opposite, the Liberal Democrats with Nick Clegg as leader of Her Majesty’s loyal opposition and Labour just another of the shrill and distant voices from below the gangway.

And, you know, the more I think about it the more natural and appropriate that seems to be.
