[100 word news] – ‘In politics you live by the sword and you die by the sword’, says Nick Clegg

Former Deputy PM Nick Clegg lost his Sheffield Hallam seat last night, saying: ‘In politics you live by the sword and you die by the sword’.

‘We saw that in the Brexit referendum last year and we see it here again tonight, polarised between left and right, between different regions and nations and areas of the country, but most gravely of all, this huge gulf now between young and old’.

‘My only plea would be to all MPs from all parties, is this; that we will not pick our way through the very difficult times that our country faces, if in the next parliament MPs of all parties simply seek to amplify what divides them’.
