I really don't know what some of the more traditional Lib Dems in Montgomeryshire are going to think. I've heard some of them talk about the new Lib Dem leader, Nick Clegg as being a 'good performer' - but little did they know just how good. It seems that he's told GQ magazine that he's slept with 30 women. Wow. Bow Wow even. I can see their General Election slogans now. "The Lib Dems put a smile on your face, and your face, and yours..." or "Its time for a change, and another change, and another...." or "We'll satisfy the many, not the few", etc., etc.. Mr Clegg, is also reported to have told Piers Morgan, who interviewed him that he considers himself a 'competent lover', which is good because we really couldn't have the Lib Dems led by an incompetent lover. Mind you, he has received a few complaints. I wonder what they were about. I think we should told - in the interests of openness and transparency of course.
But the Lib Dem leader has maintained the party's tradition for sitting on the fence. When he was asked how good a lover he judged himself to be, he 's reported to have said "I don't think I'm particularly brilliant or particularly bad." I wonder how he knows, and what benchmark he's used. I don't think I've ever seen such a blatant and crude attempt to appeal to the ladies. It was also a relief to know that the man who wishes to be our Prime Minister told GQ that he hasn't been p***ed since last summer either. But he refused to be drawn on the use of illegal drugs. Must keep a sense of decorum.
I thought that the North Wales Police hiding with their speed cameras in horseboxes on the A55 was the most ridiculous story that I read yesterday, that wasn't an April 1st stunt. But Nick Clegg has taken the biscuit - and all the cream as well.
