Nick Clegg criticises Jeremy Paxman for 'sneering at politics'
Nick Clegg has criticised BBC presenter Jeremy Paxman for his "sneering" attitude to politics.
During his regular LBC radio phone-in, the deputy prime minister said the Newsnight host treated all politicians as "rogues and charlatans" .
He made the comments after Mr Paxman revealed he did not vote at a recent election because he had found the parties "unappetising."
He said later that he regretted not casting a ballot.
The Liberal Democrat leader Mr Clegg said: "He lives off politics and he spends all his time sneering at politics."
