Labour press release
Douglas Alexander MP, Labour's Shadow Foreign Secretary, responding to Nick Clegg's interview in today's Guardian, said
"Even the Deputy Prime Minister now recognises this Tory-led Government's failures on Europe. But rather than talking about them, he should take responsibility for the fact that the Government he and David Cameron lead is more focused on leaving the EU than leading it.
"Instead of negotiating with European partners David Cameron still seems to be spending his time negotiating with his own backbenchers.
"Rather than a narrow agenda of repatriation the Prime Minister should be advancing a broad agenda of reform to negotiate a deal that is good for Europe and best for Britain."
