    'Knob' is not unparliamentary, had it been 'nob' it may have been.

    The TSR Liberal Democrats are currently voting on the offers we have received to form a Government and we will inform interested Parties of the outcome of the Vote.

    When will the final result be decided, and will you make an announcement to the House prior the deadline on Saturday?

    Our decision will be made by Friday night and we will inform the House after we have informed interested Parties.

    This is a tough decision for us to make.

    I will be criticized by some, whatever decision we make

    Can I assume that it means it is a close run thing?

    Anyone else think a one week coalition building period is too long?

    Given the comments about reducing the length of election voting, how would people feel about reducing the coalition building period to 3/4 days?

    I think a week is about adequate. Given the locks that different parties may have in place. 3/4 days I think can lead to parties rushing deals together.

    Should a government 'fall' then I think the 3/4 would be a good timeframe before a motion declaring confidence in the new government should be called.

    It's enough. Bear in mind that UKIP has a 2 day vote period built into our Constitution (and I don't want to change that really since it gives the members a greater say in running the party) so our coalition building period would be 1/2 days before we had to put it to a vote or we would have to pass up on the opportunity to be in a coalition.

    We should leave the coalition period as it is.

    In cases where there are more than one option available to a party another party may require the second three days to broker an alternate agreement.

    As said, different parties also have different systems.

    3 - 4 hours sounds good.

    It is a bit dull for those of us without anything to mull over in great detail.

    I'd like to use this occasion, however, to formally announce that I'm proposing a government and am currently in the middle of tentative yet promising talks to decide the balance of Cabinet posts and policy, especially regarding economic reform.

    There's nothing to stop your negotiating with any party at any time really.
