Nick Clegg vows: I will tackle bonus culture
Nick Clegg will today vow to curb excessive bonuses for bankers as he denounces the widening gap between the richest and poorest.
"I understand the anger people feel at the bonuses still flowing to bankers, especially those who have been bailed-out by the taxpayer," he will say. "We need a more responsible capitalism."
His speech on "open society" will also include his comments, revealed to the press yesterday, attacking the Tories over plans to give tax breaks to married couples. The Liberal Democrat leader said his party would stop such a move.
The Tory Employment minister, Chris Grayling, said yesterday: "We need to strengthen the institution of marriage. It helps solidify bonds in our society."
