Nick Clegg's aides claim that this is the Liberal Democrat's leader's most personal speech yet, as he has mentioned his family, children and background.
The Deputy Prime Minister told the party conference that he and his wife, Miriam, teach their children "rights and values".
We teach them – just as my parents taught me – that rights and values should never be taken for granted, and if you believe in them, you should stand up for them.
And that is the United Kingdom that I want my children – all children – to grow up in: a United Kingdom that defends and promotes its values – our liberal values – at home and abroad.
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.
A majority of British voters prefer a single party government, according to a ComRes poll carried out for ITV News.
