I do not understand this impulse. Coalition and co-operation are laudable but, as the recent care row proves, fanciful aims. Other than fighting World Wars, modern British politics has struggled to accomodate coalitions. The Tories are losing support to the Liberals on the theoretical attractions of a hung parliament. The media needs to scrutinise the inscrutable ying and yang of Liberal policy, but if they Tories are to win outright (which I still think the most likely outcome), they must also bring more guns to bear on Clegg.
