Nick Clegg
I'm going to be Devil's Advocate here but:

How is it possible for one man to go from 'The Future Leader of this Nation' to 'Complete and Utter Twat' in six months?

Nick Clegg's not stupid. He speaks Dutch, which is virtually akin to possessing magical powers, and up until the early weeks of May, he spoke a good fight and actually had people believing he could make a difference.

And now he's canceling public events in the fear that he might meet with actual members of the public who aren't particularly keen on him for one reason or another.

So: Clegg is the major influence on British society in 2010. Even though he's a dick.

Yeah, I think you have a point.
for the UK, it's got to be Clegg. He's been at the centre of the shitstorm, partly because he's causing it, partly because he's lost and not quite sure where he, how he got there, or how he's going to get out of it.

I think the fact that he's scared to go out in public
means that British society has influenced him, rather than vice versa.

Are you sure he speaks Dutch?
I have a theory that Dutch people really speak English but use a strange High German/Scandinavian/French hodge-podge of words when foreigners are around so that we think they have a language.
