Prompted by Iain Dale's post I listened to Danny Alexander on Stephen Nolan's Radio5 show. What a car crash.
There are only three possible outcomes to the next General Election a Labour win, a Conservative win or a hung parliament. There is no one who carries any credibility who believes that the Lib Dems can form the next government, talking about what they would do as a stand alone government is futile.
There is a very real chance that they could be the king makers in a hung parliament and it is important to know what they would do if it was the case, if they won't be open about this then why would anyone vote for them?
They also can't maintain a position either, first they say that they'll support the party with the largest electoral mandate. Then Clegg says that they have a shopping list of policies that will be a prerequisite for a deal. Which is it?
I genuinely don't know where they stand or who they might prop up in the event in a hung parliament. It is for this reason that a hung parliament is such a dangerous possibility.
Remember a hung parliament is not a coalition government. Uncertainty, back-room deals and policy deadlocks are not something anyone should be voting for.
