Osborne's new give up your rights for some shares idea

£10 billion of benefit cuts including housing benefits for under 25s

2 strikes and you're out for serious crime

You decide the community service punishment

No mansion tax

Somehow I think the Lib Dems seem to have given up the effort sad

I do wish there was some way to see what would have been without them in the coalition, sadly we will never know.

They never had much of a say, they actually don't have many seats!

They bet their future on two issues - the alternative vote referendum, which the average person didn't understand, and raising the personal tax allowance to £10,000, which I think they will actually achieve soon.

I hate that they went into coalition with the Conservatives, but don't really think there was an alternative. BUt because most people don't understand how politics works they have probably killed off their party for a decade or so.

But what will happen next time?? Despite disliking pretty much every single Conservative policy, Cameron is a much more plausible PM than Miliband. Won't matter in my area as it is a LD/Con vote.
