Would have made a good Prime Minister, if he'd joined the right party at the right time.

Thoroughly centre - rational, practical, socially aware, yet business minded. Bizarrely old fashioned now in the current tidal wave of hysterical hard left and hard right mobs running the UK at the moment.

I'd like to see him negotiating for the UK for a sensible Brexit policy. He was in a similar situation to me, family wise, in that he never had to determine a singular citizenship for his family, as was never necessary before due to EU rights and able to be loyal to the two countries which his family were from and want the best for both - something that many Brits are unable to recognise, and is now left having to decide upon one.

Don't see the point to honours as they've always been totally soured, but good luck to him

I don’t think there’s a good word for him. Snivelling career politician of the worst kind. Sold his party and the country down the drain to join Cameron and Osborne’s decimation of the country - all for a quick power grab and personal kudos.

His decision in 2009 and subsequent decisions not to bring the gov’t down have had a profound and lasting affect on many generations.

A complete fraud and liar.

Some said his party was the one acting as the brakes holding Cameron and his party from the extremes of what they wanted.

I think the compromise will be a huge professional regret for him and if truthful, he will have never realised how marginalised and redundant the lib dems would become.

Anyone in politics who doesn't compromise at all becomes a fanatic, as we see globally now.

Some coalitions could work as they’re on similar ideological grounds. I wouldn’t say that about the Condems. They weren’t far from being polar opposites. They only worked together for one person, Clegg. He just wanted the celebrity of it. All for himself know it all. He put the brakes on nothing, not even his own downfall.

The more natural coalition was Lab-Lib-Oth. It would have been far from perfect, but Britain would be a different place now.

A Clegg is a filthy horse fly type thing, up Scotland way.

Clegg is more and less than that.

It's the same word here - klegg.

Also used to describe someone who is very 'in your face'.

The vast majority of Lib Dem MPs voted to join the coalition, Clegg couldn't have made it on his own for his own celebrity. Many would say that he owed his voters the chance to influence the ruling government - this is the European argument for coalitions. I don't disagree he made huge mistakes, although it has been widely reported that the Lib Dems had very little influence due to the nature of the coalition. Others have reported that brakes were applied to policies that were accelerated post 2015. Politics is about making compromises as it's impossible to suit everybody. The tuition fees was a compromise too far.

I agree with you totally that the UK would have been better off under Brown post 2010.
