Nick Clegg has announced his resignation as leader of the Liberal Democrats.
His party suffered huge losses across the country, winning only eight seats, in a disastrous night for his leadership; a night where he also lost the position of Deputy Prime Minister following the end of the coalition with the Conservative Party:
It is simply been heartbreaking to see so many friends and colleagues who have served their constituents so diligently, over so many years, abruptly lose their seats because of forces entirely beyond their control.
I always expected this election to be exceptionally difficult for the Liberal Democrats given the heavy responsibilities we have had to bear in government in the most challenging of circumstances.
But clearly the results have been immeasurably more crushing and unkind than I could ever have feared. For that, of course, I must take responsibility.
