Clever Clegg made a 'bosses' blunder

9th December 2011 at 00:00

If anyone had doubts about whether to strike or not, then Nick Clegg's comments on BBC radio, which I heard on the way to school last Tuesday, must have nailed it. He urged us not to be taken in by the "union bosses", obviously convinced that his own track record on keeping promises to the electorate would make us see sense. Are the Cleggs of this world deluded?
