    It has been 13 years. If Tory backbenchers split up the coalition I will be truly surprised.....and very amused.

    True but it was after the Lib/Con coalition between (IIRC) 1919-1922 which kept Lloyd George in power and outraged many tories who saw the Libs as their worst enemies and Lloyd Georges as similar to the anti-chirst after the 1909 budget. Thus when the Cons swept the board in the 1922 election due to the growing power of Labour the new members decided to form their own coaltion to represent their interests against the leadership who had betrayed them-the 1922. They opened it up to others in IIRC 1925 but kept the tradition of it being closed to Ministers till 2010 when Cameron tried to force it open-only to backtrack pretty rapidly.

    Lot of echos of that situation ATM-there was talk of a 2010 committee after all...
    I know, I just find it amusing is all.
