Nick Clegg has claimed that the British people have ‘a more insidious cross to bear’ than Germany over the Second World War.
In an astonishing attack on our national pride, the Liberal Democrat leader said we suffered from ‘delusions of grandeur’ and a ‘misplaced sense of superiority’ over having defeated the horrors of Nazism.
He said we found it hard to accept that Germany had become a ‘vastly more prosperous nation’ and that ‘we need to be put back in our place’.

[Carneys Point] Committeeman Dr. Joseph Racite has decided to change his political party affiliation back to Republican after a short stint as a Democrat.

The decision came early last week as Racite went down to the Salem County Board of Elections to complete the process and switch his political party.

“Its more for philosophical reasons than anything else,” said Racite. “I just think my ideals are more in line with the Republican Party.”

New Jersey: Yet ANOTHER Burlington County Democrat Switches to GOP

Township Councilman Rick Prickett became the latest local elected official to switch political parties.
Prickett, who served as a Democratic council member for more than seven years, announced Friday that he intends to run for the council in November as a member of the Republican Party.
“I’ve been a Democrat for more than 40 years,” Prickett said. “I chose to become a Pemberton Republican because I believe those individuals share values similar to those living in our township.”

However, that was less than half of the $2.3 million his Republican challenger Pat Toomey raked in during the same time period.
