2The only party to vote for in the next election if you want a fairer society is the Liberal Democrats," said Nick Clegg’s Chief of Staff.

Commenting on today’s proposed secret ballot of Labour MPs on Gordon Brown’s leadership, Danny Alexander said:

“Labour has given up any hope of winning this election and given up on governing the country.

“Labour MPs are now in a desperate scrabble to save their own seats and minimise their defeat.

“People have no reason to vote for a party that’s failed to deliver fairness, failed to fix the rotten political system and failed on the environment.  The only party to vote for in the next election if you want a fairer society is the Liberal Democrats.

“The country doesn’t need a secret a ballot to get rid of Gordon Brown, it needs a General Election
