PIERS MORGAN and former Liberal Democrats leader Nick Clegg traded blows on Good Morning Britain after Morgan brought up the Lib Dems’ broken promise on tuition fees.

The Lib Dem MP looked exasperated when Morgan brought up the controversial tuition fees hike that occured when the Lib Dems were in coalition with the Conservative party, saying: “A lot of students in the country would look at you and think ‘that was a pretty cynical move to promise the end of tuition fees and then treble them’, but I will take you at your word that you are the shining bastion of non-cynicism in otherwise a cesspit of cynicism in Westminster.”

Looking rattled, Nick Clegg muttered ‘extraordinary man’ under his breath, shook his head and said: “You’re so pompous Piers, you really are.”

Morgan shot back: “What’s pompous about that? It wasn’t me who trebled tuition fees.”

 

Clegg has been setting out his party’s position on Europe in the run-up to the General Election on June 8. In today’s media interviews Clegg also stated the Liberal Democrats would not enter in to a coalition with either the Conservatives or Labour.
