Some much-needed good news came for Nick Clegg last night when he was awarded ‘Communicator of the Year’ at the PR Week awards.
Judges praised Clegg for “his smart general election communications campaign that positioned him as a fresh alternative to the other political parties.”
It could be argued that Clegg’s communications have taken a turn for the worse since the coalition government formed. But nonetheless, his sterling performance at the first live leadership debate – a performance that overnight propelled him to pole position in the opinion polls – is not something to be forgotten.
This is a well-deserved award if ever these was one.
