The Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has demanded Britain’s wealthiest Conservative MPs take more notice of him by telling them he thinks they should pay more tax.

The astonishing statement came as the deputy prime minister told the Guardian he is embarking on a battle to persuade his Tory coalition partners to stop ignoring him by suggesting rich Tories should shoulder a greater burden of the economic pain instead of piling all the blame on him instead.

Mr Clegg is calling for an emergency “time limited proposal” for the richest in society to pay more – a proposal which he suggests should last just long enough to get him through the difficult party conference season before they all go back to blaming the poor for the economic crisis and paying as little tax as possible.

Mr Clegg explained:

Clearly in a period when so many people are having to tighten their belts, we have to make sure everyone – especially the wealthiest Tory MPs in the country – pay their fair share of attention to me.

Obviously I’m not really suggesting rich people like me and my wealthy coalition partners should pay more tax – but it’s bloody well got their attention, hasn’t it?

A Conservative Party spokesperson however responded to the call by the Deputy Prime Minister that their party should take more notice of him and his declaration that the rich must pay more of their fair share during the crisis by saying:

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. Nick’s such a card, isn’t he?
