How to Shoot Yourself in the Foot

Have a look at this picture and have a think about it.

They are two 22 year old young men in fancy dress. Who are they i hear you ask?

Well i don't know who the man on the left is, but the guy who looks like Ziggy Stardust of David Bowie fame is actually Nick Clegg the Liberal Democrat leader.

Here is a quote from the article from the Sky news website;

The Liberal Democrat leader has described his embarrassment after a photo of himself in "ridiculous fancy dress" has been turned into a Christmas card by a Labour MP.

Chief whip Nick Brown used the snap of Nick Clegg dressed as the David Bowie alter ego Ziggy Stardust.

Now in my opinion i find nothing to be embarrassed about in the picture, I'm sure many of us have been to a fancy dress party and have pictures like this somewhere.

What i do find embarrassing is Nick Brown trying to embarrass Nick Clegg like this. Is Nick Brown that desperate to knock another politician that he has to resort to using this sort of picture.

I do hope that someone finds a picture of Nick Brown from his youth and publishes it on the internet and then we will see who is the most embarrassed.

Someone should remind Nick Brown of this saying;

"People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones."
