Labour launches the ‘completely hollow’ Easter Clegg, ‘guaranteed to leave a bad taste in your mouth’
Have you tried the Easter Clegg yet?
Labour has devised a new way of celebrating Easter this year with the launch of the Easter Clegg – a chocolate treat bearing the deputy prime minister's likeness, complete with jaunty yellow tie.
The party has created a limited number of the political eggs, promising that they are “100% artificially Conservative”. There is even a #easterclegg hashtag in place.
The packaging describes the eggs as “completely hollow”, warning that they “leave a bad taste in your mouth” and “melt under pressure”. They contain “no nuts”, come with “a free mug inside”, and should be “stored in David Cameron’s pocket”. The best before date clearly states 6, May 2010.
The launch comes prior the European and local elections next month. John Prescott certainly saw the funny side of Labour’s joke.
A Liberal Democrat insider gamely responded, saying: “I can’t believe Labour are getting egg-cited about this.”
It remains to be seen as to where the Easter Cleggs are available to buy.
