Ooops. David Cameron lookalike Nick Clegg demonstrated how out of touch he was yesterday at the Lib Dem Conference when stating that the state pension was “about £30 a week” when in actual fact it’s £90.70 for single pensioner or £145.45 for a couple – thanks to New Labour increases. Despite him getting it sooo wrong in this mounmental blunder the Lib Dem conference still seems to have hardly attracted a whimper of interest from the media. Even if the 24 hour news channels are crossing live to Bournemouth it’s only to speak to their political correspondents about Gordon Brown. Perhaps Chris Huhne was right all along.
I don’t often agree with David Cameron but I have to say he got it right when asked in an interview “Tell us a political joke”. His reply? “Nick Clegg”.
