Clegg denies he wants EU Commissioner job.

Nick Clegg has finally confirmed that he does not want to be Britain's next European Commissioner when the job comes up in 2014.

In response to a question from Tory Euro-sceptic and tbg. regular Mark Reckless, the Deputy Prime Minister said:

"I won't be a candidate, however much you might hope otherwise."

Clegg was hotly tipped for the post given that Tim Farron and Charles Kennedy are already eyeing up his job.
