Are the Liberal Democrats Weak or Stupid?
Red Brick blog publishes a diatribe against the Liberal Democrats for agreeing to all kinds of viscous policies on housing and benefits without a mandate or even any explicit deal with the Tories.

Is her attitude better described as immoral, hypocritical or just a cowardly attempt to save her seat?
