Nick Clegg's comments on Iran
Fascinating to read Nick Clegg's comments on Iran and its nuclear programme, as reported by the BBC (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-15580907) and the Jewish Chronicle (JC - http://www.thejc.com/news/world-news/57723/clegg-wont-rule-out-strike-iran). Of course, he is simply re-stating the Conservative/Liberal Democrat Coalition Government's well-established position, but it is fascinating nonetheless. According to the JC (under the headline "Clegg won't rule out strike on Iran"), Mr Clegg said: "...we want to see a negotiated solution. But as for other outcomes, clearly, you don't rule anything out in a situation as grave as this."
