Lib Dems 'imposing will' on government

Nick Clegg has said the Lib Dems are "punching above our weight" and delivering "real change" in government, as he seeks to rally Lib Dem activists.

At the party conference in Birmingham, Mr Clegg said Lib Dem ministers were "prepared to be awkward" and to "fight tooth and nail" for their beliefs.

And he said, pointing to a recent BBC Politics Show report suggesting 75% of Lib Dem pledges were being made into policy: "Not bad given we have just 8% of MPs in Westminster."
