Over on the BBC News site, Gary O’Donoghue has a decent overview of what 2011 has meant for the Liberal Democrats. The only line I’d really take issue with is this:
A referendum on the voting system was the price Nick Clegg demanded for entering coalition…
Actually, of course, the price Nick Clegg demanded for entering coalition was the implementation of 75% of the Lib Dem manifesto.
Anyway, that’s a relatively minor quibble and the rest of the piece is worth a read.
