Nick Clegg 'to be knighted in New Year honours'

Nick Clegg 'to be knighted in New Year honours'”

The former Sheffield Hallam MP has called for a second referendum on the final Brexit deal and has even written a book called How to Stop Brexit.

The report comes after the former UKIP leader Nigel Farage complained last week that he had missed out on an honour because of his support for Brexit.

A Liberal Democrat spokesman told the paper: "We don't comment on any honours list speculation".

He previously said the "high point" of Brexit support has passed because leaving the European Union was the position favoured by the oldest voters.

A new Lib Dem candidate has already been selected for the seat and Mr Clegg himself said he did not want to stand for re-election nor be given a peerage, meaning his exit from Parliament is at least semi-permanent.

The honour would make the politician, who spent five years as deputy prime minister, "Sir Nick".

He told the Daily Telegraph: "Of course I have not got an honour of any kind - I am not a Remainer".

The former Liberal Democrat leader and staunch Remainer served as David Cameron's deputy during the Conservative and Lib Dem coalition Government that held office from 2010 to 2015.

During his rein with the Coalition government he came under a huge amount of criticism for some of its policies. The Lib Dems were said to have lost the trust of the voting public having reneged on a pledge not to increase university tuition fees during the election campaign.

The knighthood is expected to be awarded for services to music and charity and announced next week along with a full list of official recipients.
