Politics 17 March 2011 Tory MP: Clegg can “go f*** himself” A Conservative MP gives a rather frank appraisal of the Lib Dem leader after a team-building exercis Print HTML Tweet Oh dear. Nick Clegg's attempt at bonding with new Conservative MPs did not go according to plan, reports the London Evening Standard. Clegg invited new Tory MPs for nibbles at an ice-breaker, but first Clegg didn't turn up because he was stuck in a meeting, and then the meeting was interrupted twice by MPs having to rush back to parliament to vote. "We all marched off for a vote that was won by 480 to nine – there was no point us being there," said another guest. The group walked back, only to find Mr Clegg was still stuck in talks. Half an hour later Mr Harper announced another vote. "We set off down Whitehall but had to sprint this time," the MP said. "Some of my colleagues are not built for running." It all left one new Tory MP rather fed up with the situation. "After that we decided Clegg could go f*** himself and went for a drink." › The draft Libel Reform Bill is a good thing 12 issues for £12 Subscribe More Related articles I believe only Yvette Cooper has the breadth of support to beat Jeremy Corbyn To stop Jeremy Corbyn, I am giving my second preference to Andy Burnham What do Labour's lost voters make of the Labour leadership candidates?
