Coalition Politics is Hard

You are what you define yourself to be:
Nick Clegg has backed a decision by the home secretary, Theresa May, not to open Britain's borders to migrants fleeing the turmoil in Libya and North Africa.

[...]

Clegg paid tribute to the 1951 UN convention on refugees, saying it had saved millions of lives and adding that "the measure of any civilised society is how it treats the voiceless".
Apparently British vessels have been launching Tomahawk missiles at Libya. They cost over a half-million dollars per unit, which is expensive, so it is understandable that getting refugees housed and fed is beyond the UK's means in the present time of austerity.

If they blow up more of Gaddafi's toddlers, it will all be worth it, right Clegg?

That was a hoax by Chris de Burgh.

Nick Clegg's bottom is paying a high price for where it is sitting.

Y'know, I have a hard time working up a significant amount of sympathy for Gadhafi's toddlers.

Maybe he should have considered their welfare before he started shelling his own people and murdering them and THEIR toddlers in vast numbers.

Fuck him, his family and his goats...
