Why didn't the Liberal Democrats go into coalition with Labour?
In 2010 Labour offered nothing. They were so determined to go into opposition that they made a very difficult option into a completely impossible one. Labour need to recognise that coalition Government does not mean that the other party simply becomes Labour Party voting fodder. Coalition Government is about compromise and breaking down partisan party boundaries. We stand on our manifesto. The reality is that in 2010 only 57 Lib Dem MPs were elected, but we still managed to get plenty of our manifesto into a programme for Government at a time when (as Labour put it) "there is no money left".
