Personally, I think the Lib Dems might end up back where they were in the '60s, wuith about half a dozen MPs come the next election. I dont think they have that much core support, they are largely a protest vote by disgruntled and/or tactical Labour voters, ie like myself at the last 2 elections, as a Labour voter in a very safe Tory seat.
I think too that there is a good chance that Clegg will be out too, his constituency has a quite large student population who will punish him over tuition fees.
I voted for them last time to hopefully keep the tories out, next time I will just go back to Labour, even though its a wasted vote (Tatton)
Were going to hell in a handcart, you couldn't make it up!
