Nick Clegg back on LBC at 9am today

For over two years, Nick Clegg owned that Thursday morning 9 am slot on LBC as he spent half an hour taking calls from the public, It was a brave thing to do and he did it really well.

This morning, he’s back there in what’s billed as his first major interview since the election.

You can watch it here and we’ll certainly be discussing it later.

What are his plans? Will he get involved in the EU referendum campaign? And he ‘s bound to be asked, as the ballot papers hit members’ doorsteps, what he thinks of the leadership contest. Don’t expect him to endorse anyone, though.

I wrote this post before the late night Guardian revelations. This interview was always going to be interesting, but got more so at around 9:30 yesterday evening.

  • I would not be surprised if he did use this as a chance to endorse Lamb. It’s the kind of tactic I’ve come to expect.

    It would be very unusual of an immediate past leader to endorse someone in the contest for his successor.

  • John Stevens 25th Jun '15 - 8:28am

    I do hope NC keeps out of the EU referendum campaign. There are many other fields he could focus upon where his contribution could be very positive.

  • John Stevens:
    The real question is how the Party as a whole approaches the EU referendum and how we avoid being caught up in an overwhelming backlash once Cameron has won the referendum on the strength of a (fairly justified but probably exaggerated) fear campaign.

    Watching that interview felt one door closing and another opening in the parties history

    sadly so, Graham.

    I feel, Caron that any past Leader should keep quiet about his preference for a successor, as it isn’t about him and what he thinks anymore, it’s all about the current membership and our hopes and aspirations for the party.
    We are a democratic organisation who should be allowed to make our democratic decision without past leaders trying to ‘lead’ us.

  • Tony Dawson 26th Jun '15 - 6:32pm

    Tony Blair, as I understand it, is still convinced that he was right many years after he ceased to be ‘leader’. So why should we expect anything different from Nick Clegg?
