March 2010: a secret Lib Dem team led by Treasury Secretary Danny Alexander set up to prepare for a possible coalition government decides to ditch the LibDem policy to oppose any increase in tuition fees.

April 2010: Clegg signs NUS pledge promising that LibDems - and he personally - will vote against any increase in fees and puts it at the front of the LibDem general election campaign.

November 2010: Safely in government, Deputy Prime Minister Clegg admits promising things in the general election campaign he couldn't deliver.
