From the Tories, to the Lib-Dems, party of government. Well they actually get fewer votes than the tories but make up the junior partner in the ruling coalition in the Scottish Parliament. With elections approaching the coalition partners have to stop being nice to each other and start with the slagging. But there is an interesting twist. What approach will the Lib-Dems take to the question of a referendum on Scottish independence should the SNP take power? Officially they are against having such a thing and favour a "federal Britain". But an internal poll of party members on their website showed a majority in favour (source: a comment in this article). An SNP-LibDem government? An outside bet but not impossible.
