"Clegg Must Go" Says Senior Lib Dem

Calls For Clegg To Go Begin To Mount 

Nick Clegg must be ousted as leader by the Liberal Democrats if they are to avoid electoral disaster in 2015, according to a senior party figure.
.
Lord Oakeshott, a close ally of Business Secretary Vince Cable, said it was time to review the party's "strategy and management" after it lost more than half its "market share" in the polls.

Protest voters and Labour supporters who chose to vote tactically for the Liberal Democrats in 2010 have since abandoned the party and its support has slumped from 24% at the general election to around 11%, figures.

The peer said: "We have lost over half our market share, if you like to put it that way if we had been Sainsburys, since the election and any business that had done that would be looking very hard now at both its strategy and its management to see how we get some of that back because otherwise we are going to lose a large number of seats at the next election."
