Nick shows an alternative way to get a swing to the Liberals…

File this story under one of two categories, according to taste: ‘How did we miss this at the time?’ or ‘Why are you even bothering to tell us now?’

nick clegg flowersHere at LibDemVoice we try and keep you up-to-date with all Lib Dem affairs. And speaking of affairs… according to the Daily Telegraph of 11th June (yes, I’m afraid I don’t regularly read its ‘Home > Women > Sex’ section) Nick Clegg is the most attractive of the party leaders to women on the look-out for “a bit of extracurricular” as the paper puts it. Swing to the Liberals indeed.

Of course this comes prefaced with the words, ‘according to a survey’, which probably robs it of any credibility. But, what the heck, it’s not often Nick tops a poll (nudge-nudge) these days, so here you go:

According to a survey by ashleymadison.com (apparently ‘the world’s leading dating site for married folk’), trying to ascertain which of our political elite are the most attractive, discovered that 39.1 per cent of unfaithful women (ie women who are already surfing this website looking for a bit of extracurricular) would have an extra-marital affair with Nick Clegg. I’ll translate: they’d pick him out of all our main party leaders, if forced, under duress to shag one of them next time their husband’s on a business trip to Pontefract.

This in itself is unremarkable, because Nick Clegg is a reasonably attractive man with a very attractive wife (don’t you try to tell me that doesn’t make a difference, because it does), who has already admitted to bedding up to, but no more than 30 women, so at least he’d know where to put it. He’s also the Deputy Prime Minister.

Unfortunately the credibility of those questioned is also undermined by the discovery that the second most-fanciable party leader is… Nigel Farage. No, just no.

  • I think that interview with Piers Morgan showed us once and for all the problem with Nick Clegg. He is essentially a very weak man. Instead of playing a straight bat and standing up to Mr Morgan, undeniably a very good bowler, we watched in agony as Clegg either counted up in his head or tried to decide what number didn’t sound promiscuous, but did sound virile.

    As Cromwell put it:

    “I had rather have a plain russet-coated captain that knows what he fights for and loves what he knows, than that which you call a gentleman and is nothing else.”

    he went on:

    “I honour a gentleman that is so indeed.”

    presumably such a gentleman would have played the straight bat with Morgan.

    I know Nick has got his faults, but to trot out dear old Oliver is a bit much given his track of regicide, Drogheda, Wexford, presecution of Catholics, killing of priests on sight, mass deportation to Bermuda and Barbados, Hell or Connaugh with his stealing of Catholic owned land , closed theatres,chopped maypoles down,banned Christmas , he was a religious nutter, a military dictator and he still came in top 10 of greatest Britons in 2002 and what is Nick’s claim to fame, a boast about possibly 30 woman. Poor Nick it seems tax cuts, pupil premium and apprenticeships and a million jobs just don’t compare to Oliver.

    On one issue you have Jo Swinson stating that looking good should not be one thing you tell a child. Adrian Sanders complains about the Miss England on another subject, you have a photograph of someone trying to do what?

    I would only vote for someone, who I thought caring and wishing to do the best he could in the job he is payed well to do. I could also add a female.

    A partner, is a loving caring person, who does not always bring flowers, he does forget your birthday, but when you are unwell he makes a lovely cup of tea. One more thing, he makes you laugh, money is not a key factor either.

    That is how quite a few of my sex would see a male. Not posing with a terrible bunch of flowers.

    After 21 years with your Party, I have joined another, but I read your site.
