Clegg 'just one big turn-off'
BRISTOL'S longest-serving Liberal Democrat councillor has called for Nick Clegg to resign, as the party leader makes a flying visit to the city.
The exact location of Mr Clegg's visit today was not being disclosed in advance for security reasons.
But John Kiely, who represents Easton ward, said it was time for the Deputy Prime Minister to step down because of his failure to lead the party and engage the public.
Mr Kiely told the Post: "If you talk to ordinary people on the street, as I do, it always seems as though Nick Clegg is just one big turn-off. If Nick was a football manager, then fans would be asking for him to be sacked by now."

Mr Kiely, 55, left, said he would like to see Business Secretary Vince Cable, who had "called it right on the economy", take over.
He said: "I am not against Nick personally, I just don't see where the party is going. If it continues in the direction it's going at the moment, it's not going to have much of a future. My loyalty is to the party, not a particular person."
