Tim Farron and Vince Cable – NOT in the talks with Tories that they claim they haven’t had.

The Liberal Democrats are preparing to support the Conservative Party once again, and I told you it would happen.

Despite the protestations of party leader Tim Farron, before the election, that the Lib Dems would not enter any deal with the Conservatives – and he’s on his way out now, bear in mind – the party is now claiming it is perfectly happy to consider supporting Theresa May “on a case-by-case basis”. I told you this would happen.

The Coalition Agreement in 2010 was thrashed out in secret, behind-closed-doors meetings in March that year, and it seems that, despite claims that the Tory approach happened during “a chat in a corridor”, any current deal will be handled in the same way (if it hasn’t already). I told you this would happen.

And when I told you this would happen, several of you wrote in to claim that Mrs May would not need Liberal Democrat help because she would have a massive Parliamentary majority after June 8; that Mr Farron had ruled out not only a coalition but a confidence and supply deal; and that I should correct my own claims accordingly.

I await the necessary apologies from those who made those claims, because I told you this would happen!
