Added DiffLines:
** The 2015 Leaders Debate was routinely described as less of a debate and more of a messy breakup between Clegg and Cameron.

* LauncherOfAThousandShips - There's plenty of RealPersonSlash about him getting coalesced by DavidCameron, GordonBrown, and just about every other major British political figure out there.

* HoYay - Pretty much everything he's done politically since the 2010 election that resulted in a hung Parliament comes off this way to the media. It's only gotten worse ever since he formed a coalition with Conservative leader DavidCameron, with comparisons to them being a newly married couple all over the newspapers for days on end.

It Got Worse de-wicking... although Nick Clegg is a real person (well, near enough) - should he even have a YMMV page?

Apparently the press is run by [[YaoiFangirl slash fiends]]. ** David Davis described the coalition deal as a "[[BrokebackMountain Brokeback Coalition]]". ** Even the BBC, the largest broadcaster in the world, sustained the idea: in a political review of 2010 more than half a year after the fact, they describe it as a political love affair thusly: '... in the Downing Street rose garden the sun shone, the birds even sang, and the world watched as the beautiful friendship between Nick and Dave began'. All complete with [[GaussianGirl soft focus]] and twinkly romantic music. *** This and all the other HoYay is especially amusing when you consider that Clegg's {{Facebook}} page lists BrokebackMountain as one of his favorite movies. [[AmbiguouslyGay Hmmm...]]

* NeverLiveItDown - Again, 'No more than 30 women', since many take it to mean literally '30 women', turning it into a bit of a BeamMeUpScotty moment. The question was "How many are we talking: 10, 20, 30?", to which Clegg replied: "No more than 30 ... it's a lot less than that.". Then taken entirely out of context by every paper thereafter.

In fairness, it wasn't his decision as it's a Tory government, but students felt betrayed. * NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity: When his apology for promising not to raise tuition fees was autotuned on {{Youtube}} as a mockery, Clegg didn't seem to mind and indeed kept bringing the fact up without prompting in interviews.
