Clegg: Labour criticisms 'ironic'

The Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg was in Leeds today answering callers questions on the LBC Battle Bus.

Mr.Clegg hosts a weekly show on the radio station which is touring around the country. He fielded questions on a number of different topics, from the leader's debates to faith schools.

He said Labour's criticism of the Liberal Democrat's time in government was "ironic" as he claims his party has spent the time "cleaning up their mess".

It comes a day after Lord Ashcroft's latest poll revealed that he's trailing one point behind the Labour candidate in his constituency of Sheffield Hallam.
