Nick Clegg and smoking - not such a hot exclusive for Radio 4

The ‘revelation’ that Nick Clegg smokes the odd fag, in his appearance on Desert Island Discs, prompted a flurry of stories in the Sundays and further reports through this week.

Such as the Daily Mail – “Nick Clegg has talked for the first time about being a secret smoker” .

But was it really such a great scoop for the Radio 4 chat show?

Axegrinder recalls that Clegg told about his dark secret vice in an interview back in April.

He said then: “I have a confession to make. I do take the occasional puffs of cigarettes myself.”

So why the heavy follow now but not then Axegrinder wanders.
