Late Night Flirting Gives Tories Glimmer of Boundary Hope

Crunch time for boundary reform today. The LibDems will be ditching collective responsibility to vote against the Coalition for the first time, and defeat is on the cards for Dave unless SNP and DUP MPs can be persuaded to help. Tory rebels are made up of the three Davi(e)s: David, Philip and Glyn. A deal with the DUP would bring the government eight votes closer to the 326 target, but would likely mean exempting Northern Ireland from the review. The SNP insist no deal will be done though that hasn’t stopped their MPs openly flirting:

It would come at a very high price but works in both the SNP and Tory interest. The unlikely deal has four hours…

UPDATE: It’s over Dave.
