You are right about the mutual trust aspect, but the Tories have the majority in the coalition and they are bound to get the majority of the say. As far as I see, the likes of Danny Alexander and Vince Cable have huge respect and prominence in this government and I would be sorry to not see them any more. They bring a steadying hand, as far as I can see. But Mr Clegg is a disappointment. Sorry.

Particularly on student fees,the NHS and Welfare.And frankly,whatever position Clegg had has knocked back the LibDems twenty years.
