    It's not what you know

    Deputy prime minister Nick Clegg says he wants to stop people getting on in life purely because of "who they know".

    Proof , it were needed that politicians don't live in the real world

    So how many of you, have got a job, because of someone you, or your parents knew

    I certainly got my first Job through someone my dad knew. He sold them a car and happened to mention he had a son looking for a job as a photographer

    This seem like political correctness gone mad

    Surely that is an important social mechanism, for the government to restrict it would be dystopian. The man increasingly sounds like a donkeys arse.

    It would be much more effective to make sure that people in power are not allowed to speak without having their thoughts vetted first.

    Re: It's not what you know

    Hmmm, so Nick, how did you become deputy prime minister

    Well, I have no special skills and the voters didn't want me, but I'd met this chap in the HoC called David, who said if I gave him some support I could come work with him....

    was it not the other way round? He effectively chose the PM by aligning with the Tories (as he would as an ex-Tory). If he had wanted to elevate his position he could have sided with labour , but then we would have Ed whassisname as PM
