Nick Clegg did meet Moura Budberg

I have been up in Sheffield today interviewing Nick Clegg with a number of fellow Lib Dem bloggers. I shall be writing it up in the party newspaper next week, but one important fact cannot wait.

I have written in the past about Nick's great great aunt Moura Budberg, and once observed in House Points that she had lived long enough (until 1974) to have dandled him on her knee.

Today I was able to ask Nick if he had met Moura. Not only did he meet her: he remembers her very well.
