Nick Clegg's Henley roots

Our candidate may not be local, but our leader is.


Nick Clegg, the leader of the Liberal Democratic party, spoke fondly of his family connections with the area, when he visited Thame this afternoon.Mr Clegg met local journalists in the Memorial gardens on his way back from a visit to Henley, to show support for his party's candidate, Stephen Kearney.

From the age of eleven, Clegg lived near Chinnor and his mother still lives at Wainhill. He said that he often comes to Thame to shop at Waitrose and that it felt strange for him to have to 'switch to political gear' in a place he feels so much at home in.
