So the LibDems can't jump up and down and stop a government proposal to access private emails? So much for their liberal instincts. Without such instincts being in play any vestige of pretence that they differ from the Tories has gone.
Surely they will suffer the biggest decline in the fortunes of a UK political party in proportionate terms recorded in modern times? That though will be no bad thing. Once the SDP tried to make the mould. The demise of their successors may just do that.
