Nick Clegg (born 7 January 1967) was Deputy Prime Minister of the United Kingdom between 2010 and April 2015. He was also the leader of the Liberal Democrats Party until May 7, 2015 when he resigned following his party's disastrous General Election results. He is Member of Parliament for Sheffield (Hallam) in South Yorkshire.

Clegg and his party published a Manifesto for the 2010 General Election promising a referendum on the European Union, to cut university fees, and introduce electoral reform for greater democracy. When in coalition government, he went back spectacularly on the EU and claimed to be the biggest fan of the European Union. The fake Conservative Party then proceeded to undermine and campaign against his party's other manifesto pledges. Instead of immediately leaving the coalition and prompting a new General Election, Clegg and his team remained within it. On a positive note, his defeats within the coalition caused him to abandon a lunatic idea which would have seen him give an amnesty to all illegal invaders living in the country.[2][3]

Clegg's list of his favourite things about modern Britain is what most true Brits find nightmarish: gay marriage, the BBC and ethnically cleansed cities.[4]

Clegg's party was reduced from 56 seats to just 10 at the United Kingdom General Election on May 7, 2015, and he resigned as party leader the following day.

Details

In the autumn of 2014, he and Ed Miliband wore a shirt, "This is what a feminist looks like." It's part of a campaign to hide the fact that top feminist activists are hideous, such as Betty Friedan and Andrea Dworkin. The shirts it turns out however were made by women in sweatshops making only 62p an hour.[5]
