The Daily Politics on BBC2 is asking Tory activists at their conference who has gained the most from being in government, the Tories or the Lib Dems. Several of them are saying that the Lib Dems have done far too well given that "almost nobody voted for them". Give me strength. It is not rocket science. At the 2010 General Election, 10.7 million people voted Conservative, 8.6 million people voted Labour and 6.8 million people voted Liberal Democrat. How is 6.8 million people "almost nobody"? The Tories got a mere 36.1% of the vote, the Lib Dems a mere 23%. In other words, both of them got very substantial minorities of the vote, while neither of them came close to getting a majority. That is why we need to have a coalition...As I say, it's not rocket science.
