Segalov schools Clegg on Lib Dem involvement in Brexit

That’s telling him: Michael Segalov put Nick Clegg firmly in his place on the BBC’s Politics Live [this shot from a previous appearance, on Daily Politics].

At long last, Brexit liar Nick Clegg had his comeuppance – albeit on the BBC’s Politics Live programme where few people are likely to have seen it.

Michael Segalov, who was too young to vote in 2010 when the Liberal Democrats under Mr Clegg went into a pre-arranged coalition with David Cameron’s Conservatives, said he had been enthused by the possibility of supporting that party – but had swiftly become disillusioned as Clegg supported the Cons on one disastrous policy after another.

And these were the policies that led people into voting ‘Leave’ in the 2016 EU referendum.

Watch what Mr Segalov had to say:

He’s right, isn’t he? And he knows it:

The outburst has encouraged others to talk about the failings of the Liberal Democrats:

Current leader Vince Cable, taking part in the Liberal Democrat party conference in Brighton, tried to play down the significance of Mr Segalov’s claims – and failed:

Mr Segalov is to be praised for pointing out what everybody has known for a long time.

The Liberal Democrats helped the Conservatives set up the discontent that led people to vote for Brexit and then set themselves up as the party of opposition to it. They are two-faced.

And have they suggested any solutions to the real social problems that prompted the Brexit vote? No.

What a waste of Parliamentary seats. No wonder Nick Clegg couldn’t even look Mr Segalov in the eye.

    Absolutely spot on! The Brexit gang manipulated the discontent connected with unaffordable housing/poor social care/ wage stagnation/welfare reform etc. Let’s hope shysters like Cable and Clegg are out of politics PERMANANTLY.

    Has everyone forgotten the perilous situation facing the country in 2010? I do not blame this on Labour by the way – Gordon Brown did his best. However the electorate punished him and a Labour led coalition was impossible. Either the Lib Dems worked with the Tories or walked away and caused another election in an atmosphere of financial chaos which would almost certainly have returned a Tory majority government. The LDs, very much a minority player, did much to block the worst of Tory policies and created some of their own such as raising the income tax floor but could not simply tell the Tories what to do.

      Why not? That’s what the DUP is doing.
