Coalition Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has defended his decision to go on holiday during the Libyan crisis, while Prime Minister David Cameron was on a tour of the Middle East.

Clegg vehemently denied he had been irresponsible by going skiing with his family in Switzerland and claimed that he had been in constant contact with the rest of the government.

He also claimed that his comment that he "forgot he was holding the fort" was in jest.

"I admit the remark was in bad taste, but i can assure the country that I am 100% focussed on the job in hand. Of course I remembered that know the posh bloke that orders me about all the time....was in the Middle East doing whatever he was supposed to be know all that serious government stuff.

Anyway, all the time I was on the piste I constantly kept in touch with world affairs by tweeting my mates Vinnie and Simple Simon and I even interrupted the apres ski to take a call from my broker. Just as well too because we managed to move our shares from Libyan Oil into a high yield fund that's a lot more stable at present ".
