There has been an angry reaction from Brexiteers after it was revealed that former Lib Dem leader and ex-deputy prime minister Nick Clegg will be handed a knighthood in the New Year’s Honours.
The gong is said to be in recognition of his five years as David Cameron’s deputy prime minister.
Clegg has called for a second referendum and written a book called How to Stop Brexit. In the book Clegg wrote: ‘There is nothing remotely inevitable about Brexit – except that it will be deeply damaging if it happens.’
Increasingly clear that the establishment hasn't accepted Brexit ref result, as the NYHonours snub true national hero @Nigel_Farage, but feature liar Nick Clegg who ignores will of the people.
The government said it doesn't support Brexit. Watch this: https://t.co/LAL8k2ousF

The former Lib Dem leader sparked further fury among Eurosceptics when he travelled to Brussels to meet EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier.
Most disturbingly, in September he said there should be a second vote because the people who voted Leave were dying off.
It comes following reports that Nigel Farage – the man who led the successful campaign for Britain to leave the European Union – will miss out again.
Under Clegg’s leadership, the Lib Dems declined from 50 MPs to just 8, and then he lost his own seat! Yet the political establishment still thinks he is worthy of a knighthood. It just goes to show what the elites really think about democracy.
Giving Clegg an honour is a complete travesty and insult. The Honours system needs a total overhaul.
