Nick Clegg's very strong rebuttal of David Ward's "stupid" tweets

Crass. Stupid. Offensive. Insensitive. Just four of the words that UK Deputy Prime Minister and Liberal Democrat Leader Nick Clegg has used to describe some comments made on Twitter by one of my party's MPs, David Ward. I completely agree with Nick Clegg's unambiguous condemnation of the tweets concerned and I cannot think of a time when an MP (Lib Dem or otherwise) has been so clearly, strongly rebuked by the leader of his or her own party. Party leaders simply do not usually speak in such terms about their own MPs and Mr Clegg's words contrast with the deafening silence with which David Cameron and Ed Miliband have greeted some equally stupid things that have been said on similar topics by the odd (sometimes very odd) Conservative or Labour MP in the past. I applaud Mr Clegg for his comments.
