The Liberal Democrats were celebrating last night after leader Nick Clegg beat off strong opposition to come third in a ‘Nick Clegg Look-Alike’ competition.
Party activists were jubilant with Clegg’s podium finish and felt sure this would convince the public of his leadership qualities and that he isn’t the tall one off Dragons’ Den.
‘We put a lot of hard work into organising this event’ said Clegg’s campaign manager, who also doubles as his PA, voter and hairdresser. ‘The night was a terrific success for the Lib Dems as a party and for Nick personally. Admittedly, he was a little downbeat when his mum selected number two from the line up, but he soon got over that.
‘I think you will find people will be taking Mick a lot more seriously from now on.’
