Harriet Harman MP, Deputy Leader of the Labour Party, said today:

"Talk of 'red lines' from Nick Clegg is laughable – everyone knows his promises aren’t worth the paper they’re written on.

"Before the last election he led the Lib Dem campaign against a VAT rise and promised to oppose tuition fee rises.

"But after the election he did the exact opposite. Instead of honouring his promises, he hitched himself and the Lib Dems to David Cameron’s Tory bandwagon which is now driving the country to disaster.

"What Nick Clegg and the Lib Dems offer is a record of broken promises and betrayal.

"The truth is Nick Clegg has helped David Cameron delivered nothing but a failed economic plan.

"Whatever promises Nick Clegg now makes, one thing you can be sure of is that he can't be trusted to keep them."
