A fabulously passive-aggressive tweet-exchange between Jeremy Browne and Nick Clegg

by Stephen Tall on December 1, 2014

Relations between Jeremy Browne and Nick Clegg have not been happy since the Lib Dem leader removed him from his ministerial post. A few weeks ago he announced he was quitting parliament at the next election. When David Cameron paid tribute to him at a recent PMQs, Jeremy tweeted, a touch plaintively:

And it doesn’t look like Jeremy was too chuffed today to have once again been overlooked by Nick. Here’s his fabulously passive-aggressive reply to an announcement by the Deputy Prime Minister: jeremy browne tweet

I suspect the Lib Dem press office got the message. Their tweet was more generous:

All snark aside, it’s all a bit of a sorry ending for Jeremy, who’s been a stalwart Lib Dem for the past two decades, as Ed Fordham pointed out on LibDemVoice here.
