During a round of media broadcasts on the morning after his election to the post, he was asked by one interviewer: “Do you believe in God?”
“No,” Mr Clegg answered simply, during an appearance on BBC Radio 5 Live.
Wow. Very straight-forward for a politician. I love it!
But Clegg quickly clarified that his wife was Roman Catholic and their kids would be raised in that faith. *So, you know, don’t hate him for being godless.)
In 2010, Clegg became Deputy Prime Minister, a position he holds to this day, and a position he will likely have after the May 7 elections, since whichever party wins the most seats will still need his party’s support to form a coalition government.
