In the end "we decided Clegg could go **** himself and went for a drink"

– That sums up the rather unfortunate denouement of a sincere but ill-fated attempt by Nick Clegg to “bond” with the Tories. The Evening Standard has the full story:

A planned charm offensive by Nick Clegg to build ties with new Tory MPs has backfired spectacularly.

A getting-to-know-you meeting was a “disaster from beginning to end”, said one Conservative, after the Deputy Prime Minister failed to turn up and guests had to dash off down Whitehall – twice – for Commons votes.

Angry MPs eventually abandoned the event at Mr Clegg’s office overlooking Horse Guards Parade.

  1. Oh dear, Nick Clegg has this amazing ability to just piss people off – mainly those in his own party.

    Judging from the comments attached to the Evening Standard article, looks like the ‘No’ campaign trolls are trying to turn the AV referendum into a referendum on Clegg.

    He really needs to sort himself out and stop being so arrogant, for the sake of the AV vote.
