Microcosmic coalition!

The Tory-Lib Dem coalition is repeated in miniature on The Dark Place's town council, where the 5 Lib Dem councillors give cover to a classic slash-and-burn Tory party of 25, opposed by 29 Labour councillors

Or it did until a few days ago, when one Lib Dem councillor announced she was now supporting the Labour Party, giving them a majority. Then the Lib Dems announced the coalitions was over. Then it announced that it wasn't over after all. Nobody knows what the hell is going on, except that some shadowy figure from London has been called in to knock liberal heads together - can't have the nobodies falling out and spoiling the national love-in!

I hope it's a lovely metaphor for what's going to happen in Westminster.
