This is the first biography of the Deputy Prime Minister and Liberal Democrat leader, Nick Clegg.The 2010 general election was a breakthrough moment in British politics for the Liberal Democrat Party. By forming an historic coalition partnership with the Conservatives, their charismatic young leader steered them into government, something they could not have dared think about only weeks previously. But who is this man who now leads our country whenever David Cameron is absent? Where is he from? What makes him who he is? This book gives the background on who Nick Clegg really is and what drives him. It charts Clegg's rise from MEP to Deputy Prime Minister, and lynchpin in the historic coalition government. It also looks at the extraordinary family history that helps define him as a politician and the incidents in his own past that have threatened to derail him. Released in time for the September 2011 Liberal Democrat Conference, Nick Clegg: The Biography will also be in a position to reflect upon the momentous first fifteen months of the coalition government - including the results of the May 2011 referendum on AV - and its impact upon both Clegg and the party he leads.
