Remember the aftermath of the 2010 general election? Like the whore of old the Liberal Democrats jumped into bed with the highest bidder. In the process election promises were thrown out of the window.
With a hung parliament the most likely outcome of the 2015 election it is likely there will be more horse-trading, only this time not only will the Lib Dems be involved but also the Scottish Nationalists, UKIP and a few other minor parties. The interests of the political parties will be paramount. The electorate will have no say in the matter. The political parties should inform us before the election of their intentions in the event of a hung parliament, who will cosy up to whom, which policies will be abandoned? Fat chance of it happening.
