Next year poses many great challenges, says Nick Clegg

The coming year "poses many great challenges" according to the Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg.

In a new year message to Lib Dems, the deputy prime minister said the UK had been "pulled back from the brink" by a government which remains focused on its "economic rescue mission".

He said the coalition government had had to make very difficult decisions, but they were "the right ones for the long-term good".
