Video: Nick Clegg "sorry" - the remix!
20 September 2012 08:43 AM
It supposed to be the hardest word, but thanks to an autotune remix on the Poke this morning, Nick Clegg's tuition fees apology feels surprisingly jovial.
Clegg released the original video yesterday evening. But what exactly is he sorry for? And does he really mean it? Or is it a cynical attempt to hold on to the leadership of his party?
The video begins with a brag about how the Coalition"put aside our pollitical differences to provide our country with stable leadership", but quickly moves on to describe the Lib Dem's manifesto pledge not to raise tuition fees as "a mistake".
"We made a pledge, we didn't stick to it, and for that I am sorry."
