Nick has been the Leader of the Liberal Democrats since 2007 and Deputy Prime Minister since 2010.
In 1999, Nick Clegg was elected Member of the European Parliament for the East Midlands - the first liberal Parliamentarian in the whole region since the 1930s. As an MEP, he worked towards calls for reforms to expenses, transparency and accountability in the European Parliament.
In the run up to the European elections, Nick was the only leader to go head to head with Ukip leader Nigel Farage in a debate on whether we should be IN or OUT of Europe. Nick fought to keep Britain IN Europe in order to stop Ukip from risking millions of British jobs and wrecking the economic recovery.
