Nick Clegg’s Arson And Criminal Past Never Did Him Any Harm In Cameron’s Bullingdon Britain
NICK Clegg warned of riots if the Conservatives got in to power. Or promised. You see, although Nick was never invited to join the Bullingdon club, he did possess much of the criteria to get in. When he was 16 and a public schoolboy overseas, Clegg engaged in a spot of arson.
“Yeah… I, erm, I was at a party and I drifted into a greenhouse with a friend, saw it was full of cacti and lit a match to find our way, as there were no lights on. The flame accidentally touched one of the cacti, which glowed rather beautifully. We did that to a fair number of the cacti… We didn’t know what we were doing. We were teenagers, we’d drunk too much – frankly, we did behave appallingly, irresponsibly, criminally. Next morning, one of the organisers of the exchange rang me up and said, ‘We know you did this.’ I came clean.”
Yep, he ran off and “came clean” when, er, caught. No charges were pressed because the owner of the greenhouses “was somehow persuaded not to press charges”.
Bulligndon Britain (must read) is being made in their image. Cameron and Clegg… Why, they’re men of the people!
