Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has just returned from a short holiday. He couldn't afford to take a holiday by himself, so he booked himself and his family onto a week-long bus tour run by YouDecide Bus Tours.
YouDecide offer a unique bus holidaying experience, where the passengers get to vote where the bus goes. Nick Clegg got off to a bad start when the bus left the terminal. He wanted the bus to turn left, but the rest of the passengers were more comfortable with the right. It was to be the first of many disappointments.
Later on, as they approached Dover, Clegg tried to get the bus into Europe. He gave a stirring speech to his fellow holidaymakers about the benefits of greater contact with European neighbours, but the rest of the passengers disagreed and voted to go on to Margate.
At this point, the Lib Dem leader decided he had had enough of being taken for a ride on a journey over which he had no control. He protested and asked if he could leave, but the driver said that it was too late, he had already paid the price and he had to see it out to the end. After a nasty incident where he attempted to grab the steering wheel, he was wrestled to the ground and forced to sit in handcuffs for the remainder of the trip.
Mr Clegg was said to be relieved to return to work yesterday, where he knows exactly who is in the driving seat.
