Try not to get annoyed mr clegg, as you did at the south Birmingham college, when someone asked you a difficult question about if the liberal democrats policy to put all unemployed young people onto training courses was in fact no more than giving them a glorified piece of paper.

Sounds like a good opportunity to ask Nick Clegg about his relationship with Iraqi fraudster Nadhmi Auchi and he the Liberal Democrat party is taking money from such a dubious former associate of Saddam Hussain?

Not at all and highlighting hypocricy is hardly 'dirty tactics'.
Unfortunately, Nick Clegg is associating with a convicted foreign fraudster and the Liberal Democrat party is taking financial assistance from him.
Strange behaviour from someone who was going to clean up politics.
As the saying goes "You can judge a man by the company he keeps"

"Mr Auchi has previously been close to high-ranking members of the two other main parties, including former Tory Chancellor Lord Lamont, Labour MP Keith Vaz and Alan Duncan, the Conservative Shadow Prisons Minister."

Actually, delete the word "Tory" from that last post. Still highly selective criticism though.

Well done to the Daily Mail, I don't read the paper, for making the connections.
Kieth Vaz, Alan Duncan & Norman Lamont did not state they were going to clean up British politics, Nick Clegg did.
Nadhmi Auchi, convicted fraudster, is actively helping to raise money for the Liberal Democrat election campaign.
These are fact & have nothing to do with my politics, but everything to do with the integrity of someone who wants to be Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

Brooksider, cleggy has about as much chance of being prime Minster as myself. The old im a working class guy routine has worn thin and last nights debate showed how daft and groundless he’s policies are. Those earlier acting skills from attending Westminster school when younger have paid off, out of all of them cleggs certainly been shown to be disingenuous. Trying to make out he’s a normal working guy from up north, when in fact he’s a multi millionaire, has attended some of the finest schools in the country. Nothing wrong with being a toff nick but you should really let people know.

Someone should ask Clegg why none of the local Liberal candidates don't support the Royal British Legions "Time To Do Your Bit" campaign.
Even the local Liberal agent Ken Carpenter can't explain their anti-services anti-veterans attitude.
