Nick Clegg has accused his Tory partners of letting "ideology" get in the way of education, but insists the coalition is not in crisis.
Nick Clegg believes that his party's place is in government and coalitions should be a permanent fixture in British politics.
Nick Clegg is a good speaker - possibly the best of the current crop - but I am not sure his conference address was his finest hour.
In a speech in which Nick Clegg argued that Europe "richer, stronger, safer and greener", the deputy prime minister also outlined "isolationist forces" which he says are on the rise in Britain.
He said: "The isolationist forces in Britain are on the rise - UKIP on the doorstep; Conservative politicians at their conference; familiar headlines in some of our newspapers each placing Britain’s ills firmly at Brussels’ door: too much immigration, too much crime, too much red tape.
"And every time Europe is back in the spotlight, their hostility towards it – this negative reaction to all things continental – drowns out the other voices in this debate."
Nick Clegg's speech was entitled Richer, stronger, safer, greener.
Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg used a speech on Britain and Europe to say pro-Europeans need to take responsibility for the "negative reaction to all things continental".
Nick Clegg said "other experience" was required in the run-up to the independence referendum as he sacked Michael Moore from his post as Scottish secretary.

As we discussed when we spoke on Friday, I believe we now need to draw on different experience in the final year running up to the referendum itself and I am keen that just as we have benefited from your formidable skills over the past three years that we take advantage of other experience within our ranks during this period.
Mr Moore replied:

This has been, and will continue to be, a hugely important time in Scottish politics and that has made it a challenging and rewarding time to be Secretary of State for Scotland.
In leaving the Scotland Office I am pleased that Alistair will be succeeding me. As a good friend and long-time colleague, I believe he will do a superb job. I wish him all the best.
The Prime Minister has said he will confirm ministerial appointments on Twitter - the first being Alistair Carmichael as the new Scottish Secretary:

A "parallel universe" with a Labour-Lib Dem coalition in power would mean three-day electricity blackouts, votes for prisoners and soaring taxes, Communities Secretary Eric Pickles has said.
Imagining what could have happened had the Tories not become the senior coalition partners, Mr Pickles warned of a "dour" Gordon Brown as Prime Minister, cursing Tony Blair and listening to the advice of former spin doctor Damian McBride and "policy wonk" Ed Miliband.
He told the party conference that the Cabinet would have featured disgraced ex-Lib Dem minister Chris Huhne - elevated to "Lord Huhne of Wormwood Scrubs" - championing prisoner voting rights and "Baron" Len McCluskey, with the Unite leader abolishing Margaret Thatcher's trade union reforms.
"In reality, Gordon may be absent. But they are the same old Labour Party," Mr Pickles added.
A senior Conservative minister warns today that both Labour and the Liberal Democrats plan to "clobber the rich" after the next election.
Justice Secretary Chris Grayling also hit out at Labour as he warned against the "politics of envy" and efforts to "clobber the rich".
In a Sunday Telegraph article timed to coincide with the start of the Labour Party conference, Mr Grayling said: "The politics of envy is back. What do Labour want to do? They want to penalise the wealth creators. Higher taxes for the rich. To pay for...a bigger and bigger welfare state."
A word cloud of Nick Clegg's speech at the Lib Dem conference shows the themes of "government" and "Liberal Democrat" were most prominent.
It also appears Mr Clegg spoke more about Labour then the Conservatives.
The headline message from Nick Clegg to his party delegates in Glasgow was that the Liberal Democrats are "no one's little brother in government".
The Deputy Prime Minister's address started with nice colour about how he arrived in Whitehall back in 2010 and he went onto say that those who predicted the Coalition would be chaotic and collapse were wrong, which was a fair point.
The Liberal Democrat leader's aides said this speech was one of his most personal yet. Every politician now gives us tonnes of "who I am" material, but I'm not sure if it works.
Leaders' speeches generally suffer from the politician feeling they have to cover all of the ground in less than a hour.
