"It won`t break the coalition...." Nor should it if the Liberal Democrats are the mature, responsible politicians they aspire to be. However it`s a bit rich when Ashdown accuses the Conservative leadership of bad faith and every other political sin known to man. His own record in this respect, even as recently as the negotiations to set up the coalition, has hardly been blemish-free. But I suppose he would such class negotiations, for example, as `hard bargaining` as opposed to political blackmail.
Ashdown has set himself up as a key advisor to Clegg and bearing in mind the baptism of fire that has recently engulfed the latter, I believe he is now tempered by enough experience to do away with Ashdown and his advice and get back to working with Cameron to see the coalition advance toward meeting its aims.
