Andy Murray is going for grand slam glory, but Marr is features an interview with Nick Clegg, and the Sunday Politics follows the tennis. Come on Tim!
Clegg wil hate this questioning over his children and family. He is deeply private about his children.
Clegg says that the Lib Dem position has not changed, and gives a robust defence of his position from 2008. He is subtly painting David Cameron as having the wrong the priorities at the wrong time.
Very clever line from Clegg, it’s not the referendum he has a problem is, but the time spent renegotiating and faffing around Europe having discussion.
Clegg says he has no fear about a referendum, and that he has happily legislated for one, but that it’s not right that Cameron will now spend time renegotiating British membership of EU, and that it doesn’t help stability.
Oh good, Clegg now says deficit “reduced by a quarter” instead of “a quarter paid off” as he has said previously.
Nick Clegg lists some of the coalition success stories, but says we can’t return to the “bad old days of borrowing out of a crises”.
Clegg up now, says that Coalition inherited huge drop off in capital spending from Labour, and are now reinvesting. Says he didn’t describe original cuts as a mistake.
