His arrogant assertion was somehow typical of the man

Nick Clegg’s stock continues to rise. He can now add blatant hypocrisy to his list of qualities.

He is a self-confessed atheist and leader of a political party which considers faith schools to be discriminatory.

So he must have expected the decision to send his children to the same Catholic school as that chosen by Tony and Cherie Blair to raise an eyebrow or two.

But it was his arrogant assertion that the media and public had no right to know how he and his wife planned to educate their progeny which was somehow typical of the man.

He has no such reservations about extolling the benefits of state schools and telling everyone else how they should educate their kids.

A case of don’t do as I do...
