Since we've got a "woo British politics!" thread, I thought I'd seek a Kushty opinion (and others, but Kush tends to sound somewhat informed where the rest of us sound like gibbering idiots half the time). Do you reckon the Lib Dems will recover enough popularity to still poll decently at the next election, and if not where do you reckon those votes will go? I think it's fairly safe to say they won't go to the Tories (given the votes they're losing are the ones that resent the coalition with the Tories), so I suppose the question is whether they go to Labour or some other minor party (Greens?) Might be interesting to see how Labour do if the Lib Dems slump, one imagines they suffer from British politics having two major parties on the left and one on the right.

I can't imagine Ed Milliband being too good at capturing former Lib Dem voters, given he has all the charisma of a grape.
