Harriet Harman MP, Labour’s Deputy Leader, commenting on Nick Clegg’s speech today, said:

"Nick Clegg will try every trick in the book to distance himself from the record of his government. But as ever, with the Lib Dems, they say one thing whilst doing another - resulting in a record of economic failure, trebled tuition fees, nurses cut, police axed and millions paying more while millionaires get a tax cut. 

"Bearing this in mind, what we really should be hearing from Nick Clegg today is a proper apology and a declaration that from now on he will actually stick by the promises he makes."
