Clegg claims the way the bill was rushed through without proper debate is a "classic example of what's wrong with Westminster".
"It was rammed through after the election was called in the last dying days of the Parliament in something called a 'wash-up'," said Clegg. "It wasn't a wash-up, it was a stitch-up. A stitch-up between Labour and Conservative MPs who decided that you didn't deserve to have your representatives in Parliament properly looking at a bill which might have a very, very serious impact on the way that you use the internet."
"That's why we said it should have been scrutinised properly, it shouldn't have been rushed through in that way in the first place, at all".'
