Nick Clegg, Jo Swinson in the news

Nick Clegg on Radio 4’s Today this morning:

Mr Clegg said that his party would “rebalance” the tax system so that the country comes out of the recession “in a fairer state than we went into it” … Later Mr Clegg said that the EU should reconsider its trade arrangements with Israel over the bombing attacks on Gaza. “The western reaction, the reaction from the international community has either been wrong in the case of George Bush who seems to be giving more or less a green light to carry on bombing no questions asked, or weak in the case of Gordon Brown or the European Union.” (Source: PoliticsHome)
