Coalition

Mr Clegg said the coalition had been "overwhelmingly" endorsed by the party.

Perhaps. But I don't think the Lib Dem voters will be quite so happy.

If Labour quickly pick a good leader, I wouldn't be surprised if they stand half a chance of getting back into power in about six months time if the Conservatives stick to Cameron's claim that unelected PMs must call a poll within six months.

Perhaps rather foolishly, George Osborne will be Chancellor, with Vince Cable only responsible for "business and banks". The concessions made to the Lib Dems means that the gap in The Conservative Party's numbers is now even bigger.

I think the LD voters will be realistic enough to know that Clegg has taken the one and only opportunity the LDs have ever had to actually make policy and prove that they are capable of government. If he just sits on the sidelines and scuppers effective government thus forcing an early election, the odds would be very high that the voters would punish him at that election.

Think of it as inevitable that the Tories will be charge (for the short term at least), but at least they have to make sure their policies are 'progressive' rather than doing all the things they want. In other words, the only effective check and scrutiny on their actions until Labour finish the in-fighting.
