More From Nick Clegg
- "For far too long the world’s poorest people have seen no benefit from the vast natural resources in their own backyards. It is time to end the injustice where ordinary people are silent witnesses, left to suffer without basic services, as the profits from their countries’ assets are hidden and plundered by corrupt regimes."
- "Liberal Democrats in government will not follow the last Labour government by sounding the retreat on the protection of civil liberties in the United Kingdom. It continues to be essential that our civil liberties are safeguarded, and that the state is not given the powers to snoop on its citizens at will."
- "I would be open about the fact that, clearly, politicians should be able to speak to each other. David Cameron doesn’t seem to accept this, but if the British people have voted then of course you have to try and provide good stable government."
