Clegg’s computers stolen as local ice cream war hots up

“Clegg’s Sheffield office computers stolen” is the headline story in the Sheffield Telegraph today.

No personal data was on the stolen laptops. Even so, the Sheffield Telegraph has given the story top billing, ahead of the potentially more interesting “Sheffield ice cream van ban ‘madness’”, where it turns out that the Labour-run city council is about to ban almost all of Sheffield’s ice cream vans from the roads because they breach new emissions rules.

Despite having his laptops stolen, Nick Clegg is firmly on the side of the local ice cream sellers:
Deputy Prime Minister and Hallam MP Nick Clegg said: “Labour are going to have cold war on their hands this summer if they go ahead with plans to take ice cream vans off Sheffield’s streets.
“While I would support efforts to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, this should be done in a sensible way that doesn’t wipe out small firms.”
Perhaps Clegg should set up a Cones Hotline.
