To be fair I think it's a bit tedious asking him to comment. No politician is going to publicly support domestic abuse even if they believed it was fine and reasonable. It's like when the London riots happened and every politician tediously begun their spiel with "I'd like to say I don't condone the riots...". Boring and redundant.

He's looking at his future career. If he doesn't get a Euro Commissioner job or a directorship or two, there's always being the butt monkey on HIGNFY/Would I Lie to You etc. Pays just as well as any other guest, after all.

Absolutely. But on the other hand he (or his advisors, who are legion) should have anticipated the question and prepared an answer.
Either he doesn't do the very basic things (too lazy?) or he can't recall the prepared answers (too thick?).

Blair and Thatcher were the masters of that skill.

He could still fulfill his main ambition to be the British Hans Dietrich Genscher. In other words by cutting a deal in 2015 with whoever will make him foreign secretary for the next two decades.

Exactly he didn't Clegg sold the Lib Dems down the river in exchange for a non-job. BTW has anyone read that Adonis book on the coalition? Clegg apparently doesn't come out of it very well
