Well well guys, most people refer to the coalition as Conservative led but it would appear that, according to the Politics Show, that in terms of party policy being implemented, the Liberal Democrats are getting their way more often than not.

The Liberal Democrats are getting 75% of their promises implemented, whilst the Conservatives are getting 60%.

In light on this government's economic policies alone I wouldn't say this is a Lib Dem led government. Sure, many of their policies have been implemented, but as shown in the clip they seem to have been on the more 'minor' issues (i.e. electoral reform - even though they didn't get PR considered, as they wanted).

So the agreement that Cameron/Clegg signed is not being adhered to? Or both of them are disregarding it?

But how many promises were given to the Lib Dems? 75% of say 8 isn't really better than 60% of say 20 is it?

Yeah but this assumes the policies being implemented are weighted the same, which clearly they're not.
