    I think they will show what the government would have been like without their influence.

    (The Tories whipping poor people in public)

    What else can they do? They've dug their own grave in a way.

    The Liberal Democrats' next campaign is certainly going to be on the awkward side, but I am doubtful that the Conservatives will avoid encountering a similar problem. Of course, it is the support of the tuition fees increases that has come to embody that degree of mistrust directed towards the former, whilst Tory ministers merely retained their original stances on the issue. One cannot forget, however, that the coalition is a conglomerate effort, and despite the ease of criticising Vince Cable's perceived unprofessionalism and so forth, he is arguably an example of a reasonable MP who has otherwise brought something of value to the government. The Tories cannot state that the successes under Cameron's government can be attributed to them alone, so they will almost definitely have that degree of extra convincing to do prior to entering a new term alone.

      Heck, they could really transform their image and go the libertarian route - freedom to the people or something like that.
