Dan Hodges, a former Labour Party strategist, has announced that he will be voting for the Liberal Democrats in the European elections.

Hodges said that Labour have not been prepared to stand against Ukip, so voting Lib Dems is the best way of taking a stand against them.


He said:

"In the face of the most racist, homophobic and misogynistic campaign in recent electoral history Labour's done precisely nothing"

Is his article, Dan Hodges said that Nick Clegg is the only leader that has the courage to stand up to Nigel Farage and the only leader that has actually been making these European elections about Europe.

"Farage has turned them into a referendum on immigration. Cameron has tried to turn them into an advert for the recovering economy. Miliband has tried to use them as a full-scale drill for the general election in 2015"

Commenting on Nick Clegg, he added:

"He's the only politician to engage with the voters over Europe maturely and honestly during this campaign.

Nick Clegg has taken a stand. He deserves to have people standing with him."
