Tories Slam LibDems Over Spare Room Subsidy Claims "This Goes to Show LDs Are Not a Party of Government"

The LibDems are claiming they have forced the Tories into a climbdown over the spare room subsidy, in spite of IDS’ denials when doorstepped earlier. LibDem HQ says the protection of armed forces, foster families and the disabled came “following pressure from the Liberal Democrats”. The Tories are not exactly entirely in agreement with this version of events. A somewhat surprised – putting it politely – Tory spokesperson tells Guido:

“This is complete fiction from the LibDems, who consistently face both ways on many issues. Ultimately this just goes to show the LibDems are not a party of government.”

Coalicious…

UPDATE: A LibDem spokesperson hits back, insisting to Guido:

“We are a party of government. We have ministers and everything.”
