Nick Clegg, Leader of the Liberal Democrats has today called for more to be to done to stamp out homophobic bullying in schools. At the start of National Anti-Bullying Week, Nick Clegg spoke out in a video statement produced by the Liberal Democrats to highlight the particular problems of homophobic bullying.
Liberal Democrat Shadow Home Secretary Chris Huhne and Chris Ward a councillor and member of the party's youth organisation Liberal Youth also speak in the short video which calls for every school to address homophobic bullying in their anti-bullying policies.
