I think you'd have found if the tories were in when this crisis hit they'd have us still deep in recession and would have made even greater cuts since tax recipts would have decreased more due to higher unemployment. Lib dems are worth the vote because it takes away seats from the major 2 parties when it is done and gives libs the balance of power on policy making. I couldn't stand to vote for the continuity of a bland, leaderless and divided labour government which is more akin to a desperate overly self concious teenager that wants to be liked than a government. I couldn't stand to vote tory for a party that obviously masks its real intentions and would have dole ques twice the length they are now and our bank system gone. A party that is worried about everything but is more happy to let it crumble than to take action. The liberals well it is best that the Duopoly that the big 2 parties have in government ends and some change appears on the horizon.
