Lib Dem conference: Malcolm Bruce on policy and polls
The public hears a "steady drip of vitriol" from Labour and the Tories which is widely reported, said the Liberal Democrat deputy leader when asked why his party was not getting its message across to voters.
Malcolm Bruce listed coalition policies which he reckoned demonstrated why his party was an "important party of the British political scene" but said people "don't actually know what difference Liberal Democrats have made".
And he said David Cameron owed Nick Clegg an apology over tax thresholds policy.
On the Daily Politics, Jo Coburn asked him about relations within the coalition, after barbs from key Tory figures at their party conference this week, ahead of the Lib Dem gathering starting on Sunday.
