The Liberal Democrat Leader Nick Clegg has called on his party to come together to launch a comprehensive manifesto which will see them retain power at the next election.

The Deputy Prime Minister said "With coalitions increasingly likely in British politics, every line in our manifesto will be a potential government policy And this manifesto will be scrutinised like never before."

"We can and must fight the next election on a platform of distinct, forward-looking, liberal policies. We must not stifle our vision, our creativity or our boldness with either political or technocratic excuses".
