December 19, 2007 11:08 AM

New Leader of the Liberal Democrats, Nick Clegg MP today (Wednesday 19th December) promised to give a voice to the people of Dundee who feel ignored by politicians.

Setting out his priorities after being elected as party leader on December 18th, Nick Clegg said, "I am greatly honoured to have been chosen by my fellow party members to be the new Leader of the Liberal Democrats.

"In Dundee, Liberal Democrats are already working hard to reach out to local people and listen to their concerns. In my leadership I will be taking that spirit nationwide, moving beyond party politics and making liberalism connect with the millions of people who share our values.

"I will lead my party to change politics, and change Britain, for the better. Only the Liberal Democrats are committed to giving the people a greater say in the decisions that affect their lives, by shifting power away from Westminster and back to local communities."

Commenting, Dundee LibDem councillor Helen Dick said:

"Nick Clegg is going to be a great leader. The time has come for a politician who will speak up for real people and local communities - like ours in Dundee"
