Speaking at a conference in Paris, Clegg said the phone-hacking scandal that prompted Rupert Murdoch to close Britain’s biggest selling Sunday newspaper, the News of the World, was “the total collapse of yet another pillar of the British establishment.”

“Cleary [sic] the press complaints commission is busted …. (it’s)toothless, it doesn’t work and needs to be replaced,” he told a conference organised by the French employer’s association.

“You can’t have that much power given to people to make or break people’s lives with no accountability,” he said.

Thus spake Nick Clegg, the man who became Deputy Prime Minister despite having no democratic mandate and thus, no accountability.
