I won't quit, says defiant Kennedy

Liberal Democrat leader Charles Kennedy is under continued pressure today amid widespread reports that some of his party's most senior MPs have urged him to quit.
Mr Kennedy was in defiant mood last night following a meeting of the party's 62 MPs at Westminster, in which a series of backbenchers gave speeches in support of the man who has led them to their best election performances in 80 years.

He said the gathering had been a 'very good year-end clearing of the air' which had left the party united.
