As if the Spanish wife wasn't enough. This will be proof for many that Nick Clegg is indeed a latte-sipping, windsurfing, arugula-munching Euro-snob.
Check out this video of him segueing from English into Dutch (it's around the two-minute mark). He also speaks German, French, and Spanish.
Last week, writing in "The New York Times," A. A. Gill rather uncharitably said that Clegg "speaks five languages but can’t say boo in any of them."
