Former Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has spoken out about his time in the coalition, saying:
‘I do have regrets about things that happened when we were in government’.
‘The thing I regret most is supporting our military action in Libya’.
‘That was not the right thing to do. It hadn’t been thought through, the knock-on effects’.
However, Mr Clegg went on to say:
‘We did a lot of good. We stopped some really big, cruel welfare cuts, like removing housing benefit for young people, which they’ve now just done. Without us the poorest two-year olds wouldn’t have received free pre-school support. You wouldn’t have had shared parental pay or equal marriage’.
