Not much time this morning – just thought I’d do a quick summary of Nick Clegg’s appearance on Andrew Marr this morning.
Great to see him talk about extension of pre-school education to 2 year olds in England and confirm that child tax credits will be going up by the rate of inflation.
He needs to watch his language on poverty, though – so much more needs to be done and he needs to be sure that he acknowledges that rather than suggest that it’s on the way to being sorted. Education for two year olds is great – but they need to be fed, warm and in decent housing and we haven’t even scratched the surface on that.
Here’s a quick selection of tweets from me and other Lib Dems as he spoke.
