UPDATE :Sandra Gidley, who shadows health is likely to vote against the leadership.
Last night’s Paxman interview was excruciating, Clegg at one point attacked the Labour Party for “reneging on its commitment to a referendum”. The government uses exactly the same sophistry as the LibDems. So he was condemning himself by those words. The whole fiasco seems unnecessary. A three line-whip to not vote because Clegg’s preferred option is not on the order paper? Idiocy.
