Great, this lampooning of Mitt Wotsisname, the New Dubya. Seems that like most rich people he doesn't know and doesn't care how most people live. Almost like a certain unelected, unintelligent and unwholesome Deputy Prime Minister who, when asked how much was the old age pension, replied, Oh, isn't it about thirty pounds a week and yet the cheeky cunt still insists on lecturing us about what is good for us. Gosh, how the Shiteaters must regret dumping Dopey Old Ming for this gilded fuckwit.
RICHBOY IN A SUIT, GOOD FOR FUCK ALL
Nick Clegg branded "out of touch" after claiming state pension is £30
Lib Dems at Bournemouth 2008
Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg was branded "out of touch" yesterday after claiming the state pension was £30.
Asked on TV to say exactly how much pensioners get a week, he replied: "I think it's about 30 quid now, isn't it?"
In fact, the basic pension is £90 while those on pension credit get £124.
The gaffe came on the eve of Mr Clegg's first speech as leader to the party conference. His themes are "fairness" and "connecting with people".
But Labour's Pensions Minister Mike O'Brien said: "If Nick Clegg thinks pensioners can live on £30 a week, he must be in an ivory tower. How does he think they can afford to live on that?"
Retired welder Wally Cotgrave, 69, asked Mr Clegg the question on an ITV regional news programme.
Mr Cotgrave, from Sidmouth, Devon, said: "How can this man be so out of touch? £30 is just a bottle of wine to him.
"People like him say the right things when they want your vote but they don't actually know anything."
Later, Mr Clegg said: "I got it wrong. I was doing 11 back-to-back interviews and I got it wrong. I'm just a human being."
RICH BOY IN A SUIT, GOOD FOR FUCK ALL.
BRANDED OUT OF TOUCH.
I AGREE WITH NICK.
