Nick Clegg faced a noisy protest in Kingston, west London, when he went to campaign for Lib Dem MP Ed Davey on Monday of this week.

Activists from the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coaltion (TUSC), which is standing candidates across the country, heckled Clegg on his walkabout. 

They chanted “Nick Clegg lied to me—he said uni would be free”.

Gabby Thorpe is planning to stand as a TUSC candidate in the Kingston Council by-election for Grove ward.

She told Socialist Worker, “Nick Clegg thought he could come and campaign where there would be no resistance. We came to say that it’s not ok for him to prop up a Tory government that has attacked working class people.”
