I reckon we can expect the Liberal Democrat Party to collapse after the 2015 election. In that event, I think the Orange Bookers would defect to the Conservative Party (which is where, ideologically, they belong – one of my commenters talked about them all being adherents of traditional Whig “power of new money uber alles” thinking and I like his description of the current government as “Whiggery-pokery”). There might be a rump Liberal Party left behind – the LD MP in my own constituency, Brecon and Radnorshire, is a former Labour Party member so I don’t expect him to join the Tories – but they’d be a spent force.
