Nick Clegg’s festive card: “Merry Christmas”

Just in case you’re not one of the lucky ones to receive your own signed copy this year (I’m still waiting for mine), here’s Nick Clegg’s choice of Christmas card this year…

Here’s what the Guardian has to say about it (yes, really, the paper dedicated a large feature to the leaders’ choices of Christmas cards):

Consciously or not, the deputy prime minister’s Christmas missive – a deep red riot of trees, stars and presents – is as different from his coalition partner’s as it could be. The collage, designed by Caitlin Costello, an eight-year-old patient at Sheffield’s children’s hospital in Clegg’s constituency, suggests a total embrace of the season.

It was the winning entry in a competition judged by the Lib Dem leader. On the back of the card is a picture by nine-year-old Cameron Delaney, the runner-up.

“Sheffield children’s hospital do amazing work all year round but especially for those children who have to be in hospital over the Christmas period,” said the deputy prime minister, adding it was a cause close to both him and his wife.

Clegg’s wife, Miriam González Durántez, is a patron of the hospital charity, which also benefited from his apology over the Liberal Democrats’ student fees U-turn when a spoof version of it became a surprise hit single earlier this year.

    Cue another Mail on Sunday front page screaming slur?
