Nick Clegg said today that there should be no more nepotism in the world. It should not be about who you know, but what you know and your quality as a person.
“If your mother slept with the pope, that shouldn’t automatically make you eligible to be a cardinal, if your father is a billionaire, that shouldn’t mean that you get a really nice job, really fit girlfriend, a really fast car and never have to worry about money or anything for the whole of your life! It’s just not fair … it should be about the man, not the contacts and his parents and blind luck.” he said in a text to Rebekah Brooks (which was intercepted by a Google Street View Truck).
Nick, who’s father was chairman of United Trust Bank and held CBE, was born in poverty-stricken Buckinghamshire. His great-grandfather was a Russian baron. He attended Westminster school where the annual school fees are nearly £30 000, three times as much as Oxford University (no wonder he knows a thing or two about the price of education).
If there ever was a rags to riches tale of non-nepotism it is his …Ultimately the key to a successful political career is preparation and learning the ability to think before you speak!
And that folks is why Nick Clegg is NOT THE PRIME MINISTER!
