U.K.’s Coalition Government Won’t Split, Clegg Tells the Times

Sept. 1 (Bloomberg) -- Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg reiterated that the U.K. government will remain intact amid rising discontent within the Conservative Party and Liberal Democrats that make up the coalition, the Times of London said.

He and Prime Minister David Cameron are determined to govern through 2015 when the U.K. is scheduled to hold elections next, the newspaper said, citing an interview with Clegg.

“It was never going to be a walk in the park, certainly not with the economy and euro zone as it is,” Clegg told the Times. “What you don’t do at a moment like that is bale out and lose your nerve.”

Conservative Party leader Cameron formed the coalition with Clegg, who leads the Liberal Democrats, in 2010 after failing to get enough votes to secure a majority in parliament.
