Scottish Lib Dem MP Jo Swinson has responded to an apology made by the Deputy Prime Minister over pledges to scrap tuition fees. Ms Swinson said the party's mistake had been to make a pledge they could only keep if governing alone. She told Sky News:
"The problem with this particular pledge, and what made it different, was it committed us to vote in a particular way regardless of what happened with the election result. That's what we should not have done."
