Nick Clegg has urged voters to vote with their hearts, in his final pitch to the electorate before today's vote.

Speaking at a rally in Sheffield last night, where Neil Kinnock delivered his infamous 'we're alright' speech in 1992.

Mr Clegg said: "These are now the closing hours of one of the most exciting general election campaigns in a generation - and it is time to make a choice."


"A choice between the old parties of the past and the new politics of the future. I promise you I will do everything I can to deliver a fairer better Britain.

"Don't let anyone tell you that your vote doesn't count. Wherever you are, wherever you live, vote with your heart. Vote with your better instincts," he added.

"Vote for the future you want, not the future the politicians tell you you should want. Vote for what is best for you and your family. Aim high, don't settle for second best."

Mr Clegg has had a remarkable election campaign, shooting up from relative unknown to race leader after the first debate, but capitalising on anger over expenses and a strong 'change' message.
