The Coalition will continue, with the Liberal Democrats remaining in Government even if the Tories win a majority, according to Rachel Sylvester in The Times:

“For the Tory modernisers, the Lib Dems are the ideal weapon to ward off the enemy within. The news that some of the so-called “Tatler Tories” have been dumped from the list of prospective parliamentary candidates  is evidence that the leadership does not think that the modernisation of the party is yet complete. The Prime Minister is pleased to have political cover for keeping the 50p top rate of tax, abandoning the “prison works” approach to crime, avoiding a return to grammar schools and retaining the ring-fence on aid — all policies that infuriate the rightwingers. “The traditionalists are just not on planet Earth,” says one Cameroon.”

It would certainly provide political cover to Cameron to continue his modernization of the Tory Party.

“Proper “Tories don’t seem happy about it either.

@Richedaw, a self described Orange Book Lib Dem commented that “its the Tory Right’s fantasy conspiracy theory re why the LD tail wags the Tory dog so much”

@mad_pieman, a right wing Tory, said “Over my cold dead body”

I wonder what Simon Hughes and the “social” liberals think of that?
