Clegg tells of strengths at Brighton conference
11:20am Monday 11th March 2013 in News
Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg closed his party’s spring conference in Brighton by claiming that the Liberal Democrats had moved away from being a protest party.
Speaking at the Hilton Metropole, the Sheffield Hallam MP said that his party would deliver centre-ground governments committed to both a strong economy and a fairer society.
He added that being in a coalition government did not dilute the party’s identity, but strengthened it.
He said: “The longer you stand side-by-side with your opponents, the easier your differences are to see. We don’t lose our identity by governing with the Conservatives.
"The comparison helps the British people understand who we are.”
