AV campaigners to target Nick Clegg to keep first past the post?
Eleanor Laing, a member of the First Past The Post group, denies Conservatives opposing the Alternative Vote (AV) have been told to lay off Nick Clegg.
She was said it was "rather tasteless" to attack the Lib Dem leader but his party was likely to be targeted by the campaign "when the gloves comes off".
Charles Kennedy said there was never a good time to "incur costs" and make changes to the electoral system.
And he questioned cutting the number of MPs to cut costs, while the number of Lords was "growing exponentially".
