Lembit Opik has a particularly low opinion of the media he appears in so often.
This was his take on Nick Clegg's admission (claim?) that he's had no more than around 30 sexual partners:"So as far as I'm concerned, I haven't got any choice, you people always talk about my private life, so Nick Clegg is the kind of guy who says, 'Look, this is my life, this is what I think, and this is my politics.'"
No-one can accuse Lembit of failing to practise what he preaches on media standards. This is his latest entry in the Register of Members' Interests: "Journalism for the Daily Sport. (Up to £5,000)"
