Revealed … Nick Clegg’s preferred biscuit of choice

There’s been a story doing the rounds too inane even for me to want to read anything about it – the ‘controversy’ over Gordon Brown declining to name his favourite type of biscuit.

This is, according to some of the more desperate right-wing blogs, evidence of the Prime Minister’s tendency to dither. Or perhaps it’s because he has more important things to worry about – just as the media has more important things to report, or so you’d have thought.

Anyway, as a result of this over-literal storm in a teacup, Nick Clegg has also been asked about his biscuit proclivities (no jokes, please, that he couldn’t manage more than 30). Here’s what the BBC is reporting … (Yes, that’s right, your licence fee is being spent writing up this kind of banal toss).

Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg has joined in the unlikely political debate of recent days in outlining his favourite biscuit to voters. Unlike Gordon Brown and David Cameron, Mr Clegg opted for two choices – Rich Tea “when dunked” in tea and Hob Nobs “when not dunked”.

I’m a chocolate bourbon kinda guy, me.

    Once again, I now know more about Nick than I really wanted to!

  • I don’t normally eat biscuits- since I moved out, I’ve avoided buying any even vaguely unhealthy food in a sort of two-pronged action to get fit & more importantly spend as little money as possible.

    But I was visiting my brother at the weekend & took the opportunity to eat some malted milk. Let’s not forget them :)

    We go for sultana and oat cookies and the occasional packet of pfefferkuchen `prjanik’ mit Erdbeerengeschmack or jaffa cakes..

  • A packet of chocolate fingers a day is a good way to live…

  • I find this whole discussion difficult to digest[ive] …..
