A shocking set of front pages for Nick Clegg

25th February, 2013 7:33 am

After Nick Clegg admitted last night that he did know about allegations (of a sexual nature) made against former Lib Dem election chief Lord Rennard – despite having earlier said that he had no idea until he was told by Channel 4.

With the Eastleigh by-election just days away – this couldn’t have come at a much worse time for Clegg…

    This election campaign has raised questions about the Conservatives’ fitness to govern

    Elections are about competence. And this one is no different. People want to know the ability of leaders and their parties to take reasonable and balanced decisions. In normal circumstances, this is to the benefit of the incumbent given that they have a track record and extreme events such as, say, a global financial crisis are relatively rare.

    The vital battle for the soul of the Co-operative movement

    While the rest of the Labour movement is trying with all its might to remove the Tories from power, there is a distracting but vital battle going on for the soul of the Co-operative movement and the existence of Labour’s sister party, the Co-op Party. We in the Labour movement have long had a partner in the Co-operative movement through the Co-operative Party.

    Miliband announces plans for emergency nursing recruitment drive as part of “NHS Rescue Plan”

    Ed Miliband is set to announce Labour’s “NHS Rescue Plan” – starting with an emergency recruitment drive designed to get another 1,000 nurses into training this year. Speaking to student nurses at Manchester Metropolitan University, the Labour leader will say that this 1,000 nurses is the first installment of the 20,000 nurses (and 8.000 doctors) the party would fund thanks to its “time to care” fund.
