Lib- Lab: A match made in heaven?

If recent trends in Third Party support continue, Vernon Bogdanor’s prediction that the winning party will need 86 seats more than the party that comes second to form a majority administration. This raises the spectre of another coalition in 2015- if so will the Liberals get back into political bed with the Conservatives ( a relationship that has not been without its challenges) or jump ship and form a government with Labour.

This article is speculating about the nature of a potential Lib Lab coalition. However, from your perspective its most useful attribute is the fact that it compares Liberal and Labour policy. Being able to make judgements about the extent to which parties are similar or different is an important aspect of the parties topic in Unit 1.
