Election 2015: Clegg on Lib Dem record in government

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has said he is "very optimistic about our chances on 7 May "despite some predictions which were "ludicrously pessimistic".

He described the Liberal Democrats as a "plucky brave party" that had put their country before their own interests.

Nick Clegg told the BBC's Vicki Young that his party had played a part in the strongest economy in the western world, along with more women in work, and changes in childcare, apprenticeships, pensions, parental leaves and introducing equal marriage.
