The Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has accused the leader of the Liberal Democrats Nick Clegg of “sneering” at politics and politicians while at the same time happily accepting a large paycheque from the taxpayer.
Speaking during his weekly LBC radio show on Thursday morning, the Deputy Prime Minister also said it was an “abdication of responsibility” for people like the Liberal Democrat leader to make pledges to voters during election campaigns which they have no intention of keeping once they are in power.
However, in an interview on the same LBC radio show, Mr Clegg hit back at Mr Clegg’s accusations:
Here’s a guy, me, and what does he get paid? Expenses, a ministerial salary? Paid for by the taxpayer. He lives off politics and he spends all his time sneering at politics. Mr Clegg should be ashamed of himself. And so should I.
