It's make or break time for the Liberal Democrat le`der

:00:12.:00:14.

Nick Clegg tonight, according to his party in Cambridge.

:00:15.:00:16.

More than 100 members held an extraordinary meeting in the

:00:17.:00:19.

past three hours to decide whether to support or try to oust hhm as

:00:20.:00:22.

It follows the party's poor performancd in

:00:23.:00:25.

The meeting was organised two weeks ago when an invitation was sent to

:00:26.:00:29.

The party has been reeling since it lost power in Cambridge

:00:30.:00:33.

It was a fantastic debate. We have members of the Liberal Democrats who

:00:34.:00:52.

could express their opinions. It is rare that people get a chance to do

:00:53.:00:57.

that. You don't see that at Labour or Conservative Party conferences.

:00:58.:01:10.

The meeting tonight was org`nised three weeks ago.

:01:11.:01:17.

These are the cheers that h`ve probably been haunting Liberal

:01:18.:01:19.

The moment Labour ousted thdm from power and took over control

:01:20.:01:23.

In the days that followed some openly called for Nick Clegg to

:01:24.:01:27.

stand down, feeling their ldader had become more of a liabilhty.

:01:28.:01:35.

He can be an eloquent advoc`te of causes, but he is so unpopular with

:01:36.:01:43.

some people now that he acttally damages those causes.

:01:44.:01:51.

The Lib Dems' performance in the European elections was even worse.

:01:52.:01:54.

Their only MEP in the Eastern region lost his seat.

:01:55.:01:56.

And some fear the Cambridge MP, a Liberal Democrat,

:01:57.:01:58.

could also lose his seat next year if Nick Clegg remains party leader.

:01:59.:02:05.

But does it affect the way people vote? They try and put a

:02:06.:02:16.

good`looking sky they're hoping they will get votes. If you have a

:02:17.:02:22.

rapport with the lead and then you are halfway there, aren't you?

:02:23.:02:29.

It's just 24 hours until England's first World Cup match against Italy

:02:30.:02:31.

an police forces in this region are drafting in extra officers.

:02:32.:02:34.

It follows the violence that broke out in Bedford during the Etropean

:02:35.:02:37.

In Wisbech in Cambridgeshird the local council has hired

:02:38.:02:40.

Italian joy igniting English filings. It was sparked aftdr

:02:41.:03:02.

victory for Italy in the European cup. But now they are asking for

:03:03.:03:08.

calm in the town when the two teams face each other tomorrow. It is a

:03:09.:03:15.

national game. Anyone want their country to win. It is big in Bedford

:03:16.:03:22.

because there are semi`Italhans so many English. We are friends for the

:03:23.:03:34.

rest of the year. `` so manx Italians. We have a major lhnk

:03:35.:03:41.

between us and if we evict people for causing trouble or anything like

:03:42.:03:50.

that, we informed the closest pub. The authorities say they ard not

:03:51.:03:53.

expecting violence, but if ht does break out, they will break ht up.

:03:54.:04:00.

The message is don't spoil ht for yourselves or others. If yot are

:04:01.:04:07.

banned from one pub, you will be banned from all. There will be a

:04:08.:04:11.

visible police presence when you are watching the game. Just act

:04:12.:04:18.

responsibly. In Wisbech private security officers will be p`trolling

:04:19.:04:23.

the streets. I do think we will have any trouble. The perception of crime

:04:24.:04:34.

is high. We are making sure everyone can come out, enjoy what thdy are

:04:35.:04:38.

doing and enjoy the games and enjoy going out for a drink as well.

:04:39.:04:44.

Football violence has been described as the ugly side of the beattiful

:04:45.:04:48.

game. It is hoped that our towns and cities won't see it a game.

:04:49.:04:54.
