It seems the LibDem leadership are fairly comfortable with making some sort of compromise with the Conservatives in order to form a working government. Nevertheless, the rank and file supporter and member seems to be aghast at the possibility. Of course, the reason for this is simple, the politicians recognise political responsibility to the country as well as party and personal principle, whereas the normal voter and activist has none of that responsibility. But consider this, the LibDems want PR. If PR exists, the current negotiations and compromises will have to be made after every election. How can the average LibDem activist and supporter truely believe in PR but at the same time demand no compromise once the consequences of PR manifest themselves? For PR ever to be a possibility, the LibDems have to make coalition governance work with the Conservatives. To provide evidence that PR can work successfully. If they are unable to do this, then they shoot themselves and their demands for PR in the foot. Terminally.
