Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg has described the passing of the Digital Economy Bill as a “stitch-up”.
Clegg made the comments in a video reply delivered to The YouTube & Facebook Digital Debate, in which each of the party leaders deliver responses to questions posed by the public.
The Digital Economy Bill was controversially hurried through the Commons in the so-called “wash-up” that follows the calling of a General Election.
Clegg claims the way the bill was rushed through without proper debate is a “classic example of what’s wrong with Westminster”.
