Iain Dale's Diary: Ming Needs to Avoid Vacuous Generalities on Cuts and Coalitions

As Iain Dale has already commented this morning, Iain Dale's Diary: Ming Needs to Avoid Vacuous Generalities on Cuts and Coalitions, the story of the day are the problems facing Ming Campbell. What noone can work out is what Ming hopes for at the next general election. If he wins big, then chaos is unleashed- he must choose between being Simon Hughes or David Laws- and yet if he loses the grizzled laird of liberalism may find his blood strewn over the floors of the house of Commons. Looking at the liberal Party the number of potential leaders and those agreived at failing to be leader is becoming equivalent with the number of MPs, Charles Kennedy, Matthew Taylor, Simon Hughes, Chris Huhne and others all have reasons to wish to end their senior's reign. Watch out too for young Nick Clegg, the LibDem's Cameron.

But who can resolve the ultimate strategic dilemma- having prayed for years for a hung Parliament could it be that that kills the Libdems.
