An unpalatable coalition
All the Tory blogs are talking about the possibility of a Conservative-Liberal Democrat Government after the next General Election. Just in case anybody is tempted this video of Jacob Rees-Mogg on Newsnight illustrates perfectly why that should not happen
So what, a toff who's a Tory. That is no reason for a liberal not to go into coalition with the Tories.
There are far better reasons, not least they're still at heart an authoritarian party (just as Labour is).
Would you rather see Cameron held hostage by Paisley and the right wing of his party or moderated by a solid LD block that means he could ignore the hunt, flog and hang crowd in his own party.
