Mr Clegg himself has abandoned a Bill to "get rid of bad law", palming it off on the Home Office, and so appears to have distanced himself from Tory attempts to free the citizen from unnecessary interference.Hold on, Nick. This was your great big bells and whistles triumph. Your attempt to stamp your mark on history. Or, as you yourself termed it:
"As we tear through the statute book, we'll do something no government ever has: we will ask you which laws you think should go,"Then came that video, of course. You know, the one where it became apparent that people were asking for things that Clegg's party didn't much fancy.
So what was originally couched as ...
[...] the "biggest shake up of our democracy" since the 1832 Great Reform Act.... would actually consist of a politician running away as fast as he possibly can from any kind of meaningful discourse with the public.
After all the grandstanding, it's clear that Clegg is little more than a gutless, inept, pointless, Walter Mitty-esque bell end.
