Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has played down his relationship with the press today saying he was "ignored or derided" before the Liberal Democrats entered Government in 2010.
The Deputy Prime Minister told the Leveson Inquiry that at a dinner party with Rupert Murdoch and Rebekah Brooks in 2009, he had been put at the "very end of the table where the children sit". He added that most of his meetings with editors and proprietors were "fairly humdrum".
He said when he became leader of the Lib Dems in 2008 many senior figures did not "know me from Adam".
