Conservatives expressed shock today at the news that Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, was in fact an infiltrator from the Liberal Democrat Party.
"I'm absolutely stunned, frankly," said Tory Chief Whip, George Clerk, "Nick seemed so genuinely committed to our cause. He never gave any of us any indication that he might be a Liberal Democrat."
Nick Clegg was unavailable for comment but has issued the following statement.
"I want to truly apologise for the hurt my actions have caused. I just hope that my colleagues can forgive my initial deception and realise that, once undercover, I did in fact do everything in my power to support and promote the aims of the Tory party."
