Well done to the LDV team for a fantastic, rejuvenated awards presentation last night. We had Nick Clegg, Paddy, Willie Rennie, Kirsty Williams and a host of parliamentarians there. Special mention goes to Caron Lindsay for giving the awards a shot in the arm.
I’ve liberally criticised Nick Clegg here, so it’s only right I praise him where it is due. First of all, it was to his credit that he took considerable time out to attend the awards. Secondly, through his jokes about the arcane inner workings of the party (references back etc) and his remarkable ability to name people in the room, even people at the back who made the odd remark, Nick Clegg showed one thing.
Say what you like about him, but that boy knows his party.
