The Telegraph has the news that the Tories have drawn up plans for a minority Government, should Nick Clegg be ousted and replaced by someone who is less sympathetic to the Coalition.
Apparently, Cameron’s advisers have told him that he could stagger along to 2015 without Nick Clegg, because the Liberal Democrats would still support the key reforms to state pensions and long-term care.
What they haven’t revealed is how much of the programme would have to be ditched. I cannot imagine a full timetable of legislation in those circumstances.
The article once again airs the usual gossip that has been around almost since the Coalition was formed.
