Nick Clegg gets clogged on eve of SKY tv debate

The Tory-supporting tabloids have given Lib-Dem leader Nick Clegg a right going over on the eve of tonight's second leadership debate to be broadcast on SKY.
The Daily Mail accuses Clegg of a "Nazi slur" after claiming that the British people have 'a more insidious cross to bear' than Germany over the Second World War.
The Sun claims: "Nick Clegg was plunged into a sleaze row last night after it was claimed cash from Liberal Democrat donors was paid into his private bank account." Inside the paper, its ex-editor Kelvin MacKenzie lists 10 reasons not to vote for Clegg - which include he's "even posher than Cameron" and can't name an X Factor judge.
While the Express says: "CONTROVERSIAL Lib Dem plans to allow illegal immigrants to stay and work in Britain were exposed as madness yesterday as unemployment hit a 16-year high."
  • Guardian News and Media's head of media and technology Steve Busfield points out on Twitter today that Clegg's alleged "Nazi slur" is taken from this comment piece by the Lib-Dem leader published by the Guardian back in 2002 when he was an MEP.
