Nick Clegg has warned that the country could be forced to hold a second election before Christmas, if his party is not in government as part of a coalition.

The Liberal Democrat leader and deputy prime minister said that “everybody knows that no one will win this election.”

Clegg said: “The last thing Britain needs is a second election before Christmas. But that is exactly what will happen if Ed Miliband and David Cameron put their own political interest ahead of the national interest.”

He also said that his party had proved that it could help provide stable government, as he embarked on a final campaign tour yesterday.
