NICK CLEGG TALKS TO ZAPPA ‘SLOWHAND’ CHARON, MUSIC EDITOR, TIME ORF
Zappa ‘Slowhand’ Charon: OK…Nick…. Take it away….coooooooool and easy……… go buddy…..
Clegg: We have formed a new band
More importantly than anything else, we have formed a new kind of boy band
I hope this is the start of a new kind of band I have always believed in.
Diverse, plural, where good looking young hot guys with different points of view find a way to work together to provide the good entertainment the whole country deserves.
That was what we were asked to do by the people of Britain in the Final of Britain’s Got Talent and that is what we will deliver.
I want to thank David for the very open, constructive and workmanlike way in which we have come together to make this happen and how we can make music together in this coalition band.
We are obviously good looking hot guys from different parties
I believe we are now united in seeking to meet the immense challenges that now face the country and to deliver a fairer, better entertainment for Britain.
Of course there will be problems along the way; of course there will be glitches. Simon Hughes….sorry… Simon Cowell may desert us….. we might not get a record deal, or, indeed, anything out of any value in time for Christmas.
But I will always do my best to prove that new music isn’t just possible – it is also better than watching a dancing dog with leprosy on the make to get your votes…
I’d like to say something directly to the nearly seven million people who supported my last band The Liberal Democrats in the run up to the Final last week…… hahaha… you took it hook line and sinker… and now I am Deputy Prime Minister in the biggest Boy Band in the Britain….
I am now acutely aware that I carry your hopes and aspirations and that Beaker and Vince will always be backing singers
I am sure you have many questions, maybe many doubts.
But I can assure you I would not have joined this Boy Band unless I was genuinely convinced it was a unique opportunity to deliver the changes you and I believe that I fully deserve…
