Nick Clegg – The Boy’s Own Politician

with 2 comments

"Is it a bird? Is it a plane?"

It’s a film script, a comicbook cartoon, a dazzling adventure story.  It lifts the spirit and refreshes the soul.  It’s a politician you can believe in!  It’s Nick Clegg!

I hope so.  I really, really do.  I hope I am living through a huge moment in history when two bright, inspirational leaders take the helm of HMS Great Britain and steer us through the storm to calm waters and the broad sunlit uplands beyond.

Nick Clegg’s speech today was as inspirational as they come.  If history views him kindly then this speech will rank with Churchill, Disraeli, Martin Luther King, Obama.   He deserves our trust.  If he has got it wrong or can’t deliver there will be plenty of time for recriminations and to return to dull cynicism.

For now,  let us believe.
