Let Sunlight into the Backrooms

The LibDems are haggling in a backroom in Smith Square because they can’t fit inside their HQ in Cowley Street.

When Clegg comes out of the negotiating room he should explain clearly what his party’s position is going to be during intra-party negotiations to the media and thus to the voters. Otherwise it will be a bad foretaste of what would happen under proportional representation. A system where deals are stitched up in backrooms by politicians without reference to voters is not much of a democracy.
