Clegg's closed session

David Cameron's little helper, also known as Nick Clegg, leader of the Lib Dems, is in Wrecsam today.

Meeting the people, trying to drum up support for the election campaign?

Not a chance!

The Fib Dems are so scared of him coming a cropper that they've closeted him away in the Catrin Finch Centre, Glyndwr University, in a closed session for their own party activists at 5.40pm today.

Also attending will be Kirsty Williams AM, Aled Roberts AM and Cllr Ron Davies.

The press briefing states: "Nick will take questions from party members and activists. This is a closed session. Interviews can be set up before the Q+A session."

Perhaps the first question activists should ask is why their leader is hiding from the people he conned... mind you, organising a meeting in a university with a man who sold out thousands of students on tuition fees took some genius. I really hope those students don't get to hear about it...

Is Peter Black coming to see Clegg? Probably no, having two liabilities in the same room at the same time is probably more than even grass roots Lib Dems could stomach.

It's certainly fair that he be questioned over his stance on tuition fees however it should never be forgotten which government introduced the double whammy of up-front tuition fees and abolishment of the grant, around a year after pledging not to, which set this irreversible tide in motion.

Similar set-up in Swansea today. Black is one of the names.
