Nick Clegg’s Letter from the Leader: “Behind the scenes of ‘Call Clegg'”

‘Nick Clegg effect helps LBC to record 1m listeners’ noted The Guardian last week — yes, the Lib Dem leader’s risky decision last January to host a weekly radio phone-in has proved a hit with the public.

libdem letter from nick clegg

Remember, you don’t have to be in London to listen. The show will start again after a short August break, so I hope you can tune in or listen online.

All the best,

Nick
