Nick Clegg, March 2010:
...No wonder people feel let down. No wonder people feel they shouldn’t expect too much. The old parties have drained our ambition to do things differently. They seem to say: we’ve been in charge for decades – don’t now start hoping for more. That’s just the way things are. No.
...No courage. No honesty. Just a miserable attempt to save their own skins.
...People say all politicians are the same. They are not.
...A vote for the Liberal Democrats is a commitment to hope and opportunity.
It’s a vote that says: I want government to be honest and open.
