Stephen and I have been around conference and – armed with his camera and my brazen cheek – managed to put four quick questions to top Lib Dem MPs, Chris Huhne and Nick Clegg.

At last night’s Independent fringe, Steve Richards chaired a meeting at which the pair were the only speakers. While they have spoken from the same fringe platform before, the crafty Indy hacks had asked only the two of them. (Something they seem to have forgotten to mention to either Nick or Chris when inviting them.) This was therefore billed by the paper as the first-ever live debate between Chris and Nick.

Not to be outdone, we have temporarily given in to the personality obsession of the media, and snatched a couople of moments with both the MPs for a few questions. Chris spoke to us as The Grand’s porters cleared away chairs from the Indy fringe, and we managed to grab Nick in between press interviews on his immigration motion today.

Today we’re showing the first part of the interview, in which we asked:

What do the Liberal Democrats stand for? and
Who should the Lib Dems go into coalition with?

Tune in tomorrow to discover how Chris and Nick answered our second set of questions:

Are you an Orange Booker? and
Do you want to be Lib Dem leader?
