The Liberal Democrats is to hold a "root-and-branch look" at their current strategy, including how and by whom it is presented, an MP has said, following calls for Nick Clegg to resign.
MP John Pugh told The Independent on Sunday: "There was a widespread view that no matter how much Nick spoke there was a section of the electorate that would not give him a fair hearing.
"We need to try to improve the national profile and try not to make Nick such an obvious target. It's the elephant in the room and the party can't ignore it."
Cable said he had no knowledge of the 'reprehensible' polls leaked by Lord Oakeshott on Nick Clegg's leadership.
