Herewith an interesting interview with Mr Clegg – if one is “pushed for time”, advance the play button on the video to 4 minutes 40 seconds.
British Gazette comment: Ever controversial, this organ may well incur the criticism of some of its readers by suggesting that this particular episode in Mr Clegg’s passed be “passed over” without further comment.
Why fail to “stick the boot in” you ask?
One of the problems with the political arena is the tendency of that arena to eliminate players from it who “have a past”. That they have done something, often a long time ago – as Mr Clegg who was 16 at the time. It means that political parties tend to seek individuals with no skeletons in their cupboard. The problem is that if you find a man or a woman who has done absolutely nothing wrong, that they have never done anything that they later regret or have said something that they had rather not said or whatever, it means that this person, possibly a very able and talented person, will be passed over for someone who appears to be “completely clean.” The trouble with such people is that they may well have very done anything or achieved anything in life. Everybody makes mistakes.
Of course, the British Gazette is not uncritical of Mr Clegg. It is firmly of the opinion that Mr Clegg should indeed to held to account for his actions: these actions however are a wilful and premeditated act of PERJURY when he knowingly and with malice aforethought took THE MOST SOLEMN OATH of Privy Counsellor without ANY intention of adhering to it! He has also committed the felony of HIGH TREASON, by persuading the Queen to govern in a peculiar way (by handing over the government to a foreign power, namely the European Union) placing her in breach of her CORONATION OATH to govern the British People according to their laws and customs.
For these crimes, Mr Clegg should indeed be prosecuted!
