Nick Clegg Better Recognised Across America Than David Cameron - April 23rd 2010

Following a surge of popularity in the polls Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg is now a more familiar name amongst Americans than Conservative Party leader David Cameron. After two TV debates which have both been declared a win in Clegg's favour snap polling revealed that nearly 100% of Americans were aware of his identity:

"Nick Clegg," Chuck Hankman, an American, mused "He's that guy on Twitter who everyone agrees with, right? Man, that's probably why everyone wants to vote for him."

"I heard that Nick Clegg is leader of the Liberal Democrats," Dennis Bock, another American explained, "Well our Democrats are Liberals too, I guess that is why everyone is calling him the British Obama."

The popularity of Nick Clegg, coined Cleggmania by the press, has spread across the Atlantic with thousands of 'I agree with Nick' T Shirts being sold across the United States and Canada in the first 24 hours:

"I've got my T-Shirt!" Dennis Bock explained, "If this Nick Clegg is that popular in England then he is going to be a huge success over here. Just look at Ricky Gervais and the Beatles... all the British greats do well over here I just wanted to get in early so I can say I liked him before he made it big."

Despite being leader of Britain's second party, and having been established in that position for 2 years longer than Nick Clegg, David Cameron has failed to attract the same level of recognition as the Lib-Dem leader:

"David Cameron?" Dennis Bock replied, somewhat stumped, "Is he the new Doctor Who?"

Political Analyst Keith Wilson said he was not surprised that the Conservative Leader had not gained the same level of recognition:

"Well, for a start he is not as handsome," He explained, "Americans are a very shallow race of people they spend five times as much on dentistry per person a year than the British spend on, well, dentistry.

"Secondly, David Cameron has been struggling to make a sizeable twitter post explaining his policies, but most important he appears to be a serious politician, and with Americans the notion of a modern Conservative politician also being a serious politician simply does not compute.

"Look at Bush, look at Palin, look at the impression of a senile great grandfather lost in a shopping mall that John McCain pulled off during the 2008 Presidential Campaign... American Conservatives are amazing comic relief characters. You see, you can't screw with the poor, plunge the economy into disrepair or start a protracted illegal war with no end in site and then claim to be a serious politician. The only way Americans were able to stomach it for 8 years was because of how funny the 'Bush is stupid' jokes cheered them up. If you were to do all those things and then say 'I'm a serious politician'... well then that would just make you evil."

Quickly realising that he had just implied that David Cameron was evil, Keith Wilson quickly backtracked:

"No, no, no! David Cameron isn't evil!" He laughed, "I said he had a veneer of competency to him, an illusion. Have you heard about his 'Big Society' idea? You know, the idea of everyone holding hands and singing Kum-by-Yah living in peace and harmony? Yeah, well he is bonkers too."
