LDVideo: Nick Clegg playing table tennis

During the Federal Conference, Nick Clegg went on a visit to Drumchapel Table Tennis club in Glasgow and ended up actually playing a game. I suspect the collective blood pressure of his entourage was a bit on the elevated side while he was doing it. After all, they usually make sure that their principals never get into any situation that could cause embarrassment.

Thankfully, though, Nick is pretty good at table tennis and acquitted himself well.

The club filmed the proceedings and put it up here on You Tube.

LDVideo: Nick Clegg speaks at equal marriage vigil

And finally, ending the week when the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act received Royal Assent, a reminder of  the happy scenes when Nick Clegg went out and spoke to the vigil outside. As the London Gay Men’s Chorus sang Dancing Queen, he talked about how he hoped that in a few years’ time, people would be asking what the fuss was about. He said it was perfectly unremarkable for two people who love each other to want to get married regardless of their gender or sexuality. He also paid tribute to key figures who helped bring the bill about. I’ve added to that list here.

I defy you to watch this without smiling. It’s available here on You Tube.

Mike Thornton says thank you

Hundreds of activists from across the UK have been part of a fantastic campaign in Eastleigh. Tonight, as we wait nervously for word from Hampshire, it’s gratifying to know that our candidate has impeccable manners, sending us this within minutes of the polls closing.

Nick Clegg beats James Bond and the Queen

The BBC reports that You Tube has published its top trending videos of 2012 in the UK. That Gangnam Style came top is not really a surprise, I suppose. What caught my eye, though, is that the Poke’s auto-tuned video of Nick Clegg’s apology over tuition fees beat that iconic moment from the Olympic Opening Ceremony with Daniel Craig and the Queen.

The Clegg video has been seen by over 2 million people. Here it is again in case you missed it…
