Clegg has been the Leader of the Liberal Democrats since 2007, and a member of parliament (MP) representing Sheffield Hallam since 2005. Having attended the University of Cambridge, the University of Minnesota, and the College of Europe, he was previously a Member of the European Parliament (MEP) and an award winning journalist for the Financial Times.
