Party members will support emergency motion opposing secret courts at this weekend's conference after just seven Lib Dem MPs voted against the bill.
The activists who won the ground war in Eastleigh want their new MP - and all other Lib Dems - to vote against secret courts today.
The party's victory over the Tories in last night's council by-election in London offers even greater evidence of Lib Dem resilience.
After previously suggesting that the Lib Dem chief executive resigned on "health grounds" alone, Clegg admits that concerns over his "inappropriate behaviour" were "in the background".
Five of the Lib Dems' seven female MPs hold seats among the party's 12 most vulnerable and none hold any of the 20 safest.
Coalition was meant to be a journey to political maturity and professionalism. But it's amateur hour yet again.
The hundreds of activists stuffing envelopes in Eastleigh have been let down by the party's hopelessly inadequate response to the Rennard allegations five years ago.
Party president Tim Farron admits the Lib Dems "screwed up" as Clegg insists there is "nothing to hide".
Nick Clegg contradicts Iain Duncan Smith and says that the government has estimated the number of Romanian and Bulgarian immigrants expected next year.
