Nick Clegg guesses how much state pension is, gets it wrong

Nick Clegg got asked today on the telly how much the state pension is. Not a difficult question, you'd have thought, for a leader of a national political party - it's the sort of thing that even politicians who don't know how much a pint of milk costs would know. His answer?

"About £30 per week".

I like that whenever Nick Clegg gets a question that he is flummoxed by, he guesses that the answer is thirty.

But it is actually £90.70 (for a single person) and £145.45 a week (for a couple).

So he'd probably be right on the money if you asked him "Nick, could you tell us how many MPs the Lib Dems will have after the next election?"
