Nick Clegg is writing a book about surviving in politics. No, really.

Deciding to ignore the old saying that you should write what you know, the former deputy PM is penning ‘Politics: The Art of the Possible in an Age of Unreason’ for publication next year.

Apparently, he will use his experience in the coalition government to look at the ‘fluid and unpredictable state of politics, which has seen old certainties disappear, outsider figures become mainstream, and nationalism, populism and identity politics rise up at home and abroad’.

According to Politics Home, the press release references Clegg’s first-hand experience of this.

‘More so than any other political figure, Nick Clegg has seen the volatile state of modern politics up close and personally, from his spectacular rise to national prominence at the 2010 General Election to his tumultuous experience in Government and defeat in 2015,’ a press release said.

And Clegg added that he’ll be reflecting on ‘how the politics of reason, evidence and compromise can survive at a time when grievance and unreasoned populism are on the march at home and abroad’.

He must know something we don’t.
