Chris Leslie MP, Labour's Shadow Treasury Minister, responding to The Guardian splash on Nick Clegg's tax proposals, said:

"Nick Clegg is once again taking the British people for fools. He talks about a tax on the wealthiest, but he voted for the tax cut for millionaires in George Osborne's Budget. And he has supported a failing economic plan which has pushed Britain into a double-dip recession and is leading to borrowing going up by a quarter so far this year."
