London - (Glib Gab Pact): "Someone should quiz Nick Clegg about dodgy Liberal Democrat Mayor of Camden, Omar Faruque Ansari," pollsters said today ahead of the second (c)leg of the party leaders' televised debate.
Ansar, 69, was arrested by police in January this year and charged with being a benefits cheat.
And while specifics are thin on the ground media reports have stated three counts of fraudulent benefit claims go back as far as 1996.
Despite having been suspended by his local Glib Dem party Ansari is sticking to his guns, claiming the right to announce the result of the election on the night of May 6 as befits a Mayor of the borough.
No amount of cajoling by friends and colleagues has been enough to elicit a resignation from the alleged scrounger.
Borough officials remain tightlipped about reports the charges are just the public tip of a monster iceberg.
