Don't you find that both David and Nick don't live in the same world as the rest of us. I will rephrase that they don't live in the same world as working class. As the only thing I could do was to stand guarantor for my children when they bought their homes...

Perhaps this another thing Nick Clegg will apologise for later down the line, when it is too late.
