Gillian Duffy, the Rochdale grandmother labeled a “bigot” by Gordon Brown during the general election campaign has tackled Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg about the Liberal Democrat coalition with the Conservatives. Mr Clegg visited Rochdale on Tuesday (12 April 2011) to announce the results of the Regional Growth Fund. On Mr Clegg’s arrival to Holroyd Precision Ltd in Milnrow, Mrs Duffy asked him to look her in the eye and tell her if he was “happy” with the current policies. Mr Clegg told Mrs Duffy that whoever was in power would be making “difficult decisions.” However, despite Mr Clegg’s answers, Mrs Duffy wasn’t impressed. She said she had heard him say the same thing on the TV and radio.
