Nick Clegg has indicated that he intends to remain Liberal Democrat leader even after the event of a zombie apocalypse.
The deputy prime minister’s spokesman said he wanted to stay in the job for the “whole of the next parliament” even if the world is completely taken over by brain eating animated corpses.
This ambition would remain in place “whether or not we’re in government after hordes of shuffling undead corpses have been unleashed on an unsuspecting public”, he added.
The statement comes amid speculation that Chief Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander is positioning himself for a Lib Dem leadership bid in the event of Mr Clegg accidentally allowing the four horsemen of the apocalypse to be unleashed on the world from the gates of Hell.
