Senor Clegg, not what he says but how he says it

Clegg: ’Prefiero recortar el gasto público antes que despedir a funcionarios’

Nick Clegg is just about to make a speech on his conversion to economic conservatism - expect him to blame the previous lot. "Our problems are more serious than we realise and we have to get on with putting things right," he's just said.

Here's our deputy Prime Minister Senor Nick Clegg giving an interview to Spanish television, in Spanish. We'd rather see his wife, Miriam González Durántez, give an interview in any language but he burnishes his European credentials with this performance.

Miriam, we're told, insists on Spanish being the language of the Clegg household so that means the DPM must keep his fluency levels up and she must win all the rows.
