to protect Nick Clegg
Clegg, nicknamed Dizzy Nicky because of his constant “U”
turns, told the BBC [Radio
Sheffield 17th December 2010] that the £80m loan
to Forgemasters to build parts for nuclear power stations,
which the coalition cancelled as part of a review of Labour's
spending decisions in June, could be looked at again.
also told the BBC
"I would dearly like to see us support it if we can,".
Secretary Vince Cable has previously said he would "entertain"
a fresh loan application from Forgemasters.
Clegg went on record in June when the coalition cancelled
the loan by saying: “The
truth is that this loan [£80m to Forgemasters] was promised
by the outgoing Labour Government as a calculated ploy
to win support in Sheffield just ahead of the election,
when they knew all along that there simply wasn't the money
to keep to that pledge in first place.”
said it was right to review the decisions [£80m to Forgemasters]
that were taken very close to the election by the last government."There
was a suspicion that while some of these decisions might have
been good decisions, not all of them were good decisions and
not all of them were good value for money".
the 8 September 2010 during Prime Ministers Question time,
when Nick Clegg stood in for David Cameron, the Cardiff West
MP Kevin Brennan urged a rethink, but Mr Clegg, MP for Sheffield
Hallam, insisted it was the right decision to cancel
the loan to Sheffield Forgemasters.
Could it be that Mr. Clegg may say “The
truth is that this loan is promised as a calculated ploy to
win support in Sheffield for the Liberal democrats?”
I doubt he will.

that is Fair and Honest, even though nobody voted for it,
nobody wants it, and nobody likes it, including the coalition
