Scandal. Cleggy is an intellectual. Not only does he read books but he reads difficult ones - Beckett no less.
What is the world coming to? A decent politician might admit to an occasional dalliance with Deighton, Clancy or Archer (if a Tory). I know that all the Labour pols claim to have read Tressell but no-one really believed them. Whereas Cleggy sounds as if he really has read Beckett.
It will end in tears, I tell you.
