    The solitary thing I will give the Lib Dems credit for, having stuck out the five years: nobody, this time around, is talking of coalitions as being weak, fear-mongering about hung parliaments...

    Actually, I do think that minority parties should be represented - and held accountable for their views and actions.

    Are you sure your perception of these parties as 'small' isn't being skewed by the FPTP status quo? In 2010, the Lib Dems got 6.8m votes compared to 8.6m for Labour. Current opinion polls are...
