we seem to be missing a Conservative and Liberal Democrat speaker from the "greenest government ever"!

I think they all said they were washing their hair that day.

Clegg did speak at this once actually - I seem to remember he got both heckled and cheered and the Lib Dems put up a highly edited YouTube clip of it...

Wasn't sure about the heckling myself, seems a bit rude to invite someone and then jeer at them - but then I remember he's a Lib Dem, which cushions the blow.
