because I am an optimist
(and a Lib Dem supporter) I think it's better to see some Liberal policies and influence in a compromise government, than no Liberal policies and influence in a Conservative or Labour majority or minority government.

Maybe more comment on policies if I have time later.

Will also respond to the idea that some people are suggesting: that Labour wanted to work out a deal with the Lib Dems. This is bullshit. Before they'd even had discussions, Labour MPs were appearing on TV saying they would not support it, and all we've heard about the discussion itself was that the Labour representatives were unable to make any compromises and just "offered their manifesto".

I concur. People idignantly calling Nick Clegg a sell out and saying "I voted Lib Dem to keep the Tories out" are failling to see that this is better than the vast majority of alternatives.
