Why Rory Bremner won’t impersonate Nick Clegg

The Birmingham Mail reports:

He’s recently been touted as a Lib Dem supporter after attending one of their parties at the House of Commons, but Rory admits that, professionally speaking, he doesn’t want them to do well in the general election – because he can’t take off Nick Clegg.

“I struggle with David Cameron, but I find Clegg particularly difficult to master,” confesses the impressionist and satirical comic, who is about to embark on his first tour in five years.

“I imagined meeting him at the party and him asking ‘Can you do me?’ I was going to say ‘No, can you?’.

“I don’t think my life would be significantly poorer if I don’t impersonate Nick Clegg. I think life is short enough without sitting up night after night listening to tapes of him and George Osborne.

“Professionally speaking, I want characters to win the election, but sadly we are probably going to lose a generation of people like David Blunkett and John Prescott…

So will Rory, as has been suggested, be voting Lib Dem?

Like a good politician, he won’t commit himself, saying: “I am a pretty liberal lefty, but I’ve voted for all sorts of different parties in my time, and so far I’m not convinced by any party in this election.

“Just because I went to a Lib Dem party doesn’t mean I support them.”
