Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg has branded critics “people who like protest” and told them to vote Labour, in defiant comments during his party conference in Brighton.
The Deputy Prime Minister revealed his anger after suffering two years of “mendacity” and “bile” from opponents since forming a coalition with the Conservatives.
And he told some of his critics he didn’t want their votes - saying: “We are not the party for you.”
He added: “If people want just protest politics, if they want a sort of ‘I don’t like the world let me get off” party, they’ve got one. It’s called the Labour Party.”
