Nick Clegg visits Oldham in run up to the By-election

Nick Clegg visited Oldham Training Centre along with Elwyn Watkins in the run up to the Oldham East and Saddleworth By-election.

Mr Clegg met with young trainees at the OTC and was given a guided tour around the building by management, he spoke with young people at the centre and and showed a genuine interest in what was being achieved there.

The centre is used by over 200 companies and has a wide range of courses available from electronics to mechanical engineering, it also offers training in health and safety and first aid at work.

Speaking to GPSJ editor Stuart Littleford, Mr Clegg said he thought there was hope for young people even in the current economic climate and the public sector under the coalition government will still employ more people than labour ever did.

He also said that labour had no real answers whatsoever.

He was accompanied by Elwyn Watkins the Liberal Democrat candidate for the upcoming By-election who’s recent legal battle saw Phil Woolas removed from office for lying in the election campaign.

Nick Clegg says he is disappointed that Mr Woolas has still not apologised.
