I'm not different in any way from Nick Clegg. I am happily part of his team. That is not changing. I am part of this coalition Government and committed to working in it.
But I do have perfectly businesslike, amicable relationships with members of the Labour Party and other parties. I see no problem in that - that is grown up and sensible.
I have no ambitions in that area. I have been leader of my party for a relatively short period of time. I have been there and done that and I am getting on with my job in Government.
