I think that after all the shennanigans of the last 24hrs this will prove to have been a very good election to lose. The ideal situation for Libs and Labs is in fact a Tory minority government. That would enable them to give Cameron two years to make the deep, deep cuts required to restore solvency to the public coffers and make him the most hated man in Britain as a result. There will be some hardships, there could well be some civil unrest too. Then, when Cameron has done the necessary and become hated for it, the Libs and Labs could pass a vote of no confidence in his minority government, bring him down and have a runoff between them for 1st and 2nd place in a 2012 election.

Or is that too Machiavellian?

I have blogged some more detailed thoughts on the election today on my work blog,
