Nick Clegg, leader of the Liberal Democrats party as well as the current Deputy Prime Minister of UK delivers this speech in his typically blunt manner to students at a college in North London.

It’s rare in our times that a politician exudes so much conviction when speaking about reforming the idea of democracy. Most seasoned politicians, perhaps because they have been seasoned in a different age than current times, choose to protect the game and it’s rules for the benefit of a tenured reign. A younger candidate has an advantage to adapting over an ageing one. Nick Clegg has been consistently enthusiastic about his ideas about reforming the machinery of democracy.
