How can Clegg taking part in a phone-in help him or us?

Have your say

I cannot believe that Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg is going to have his own weekly phone-in radio show.

Seriously? This news came on the back of watching The Iron Lady, which is an excellent film by the way, and very much highlighted Margaret Thatcher’s backbone.

Love her or hate her, you have to admire that she knew her mind and respect her opinion that she was there to lead.

How Nick Clegg can think that sitting listening to the public’s views on a phone-in will help him, or any of us, is beyond me.

With an important role in the coalition government, surely he has a whole host of things to be getting on with – instead of wasting time chatting on the airwaves with the great unwashed.
