Julian Huppert: Nick Clegg failed to extol the positive virtues of the Liberal Democrats


Julian Huppert, the former Liberal Democrat MP for Cambridge, is now teaching at the city's university,

He has been interviewed by its newspaper Varsity:
"The Tories outgunned us at the last election," he tells me, agreeing that Cameron’s party took credit for all the good policies. 
"It was Lib Dem pressure on the Tories that caused inequality to fall during our time in government," he asserts with conviction. 
Throughout the interview it’s clear that Huppert is deeply passionate about helping people and his party, at one point reciting verbatim the start of the Liberal Democrat constitution. 
Clegg, for him, had consistently failed to extol the positive virtues of the Liberal Democrats and the importance of removing obstacles such as poverty from people’s lives.

and yet, when it came to it, Julian opposed the move by the Cambridge Party to ask for a leadership election after the disastrous Euro elections in 2012, a move which was narrowly lost and which probably cost julian his seat in the 2015 election.
