Ooh, a touch of drama just now, as Nick Clegg addressed the 1,000 or so protestors calling for voting reform in Smith Square.  He said that the demonstration was "wonderful," and got big cheers for saying that PR is "in the national interest".  But there were no hints, either way, about how the Lib-Con talks are going, or whether PR was a dealbreaker – which may have left the people shouting "Don't sell out!" a little dissatisfied.  For all the banners and flags, this one will still come down to the decisions of men in suits, behind oak doors.

UPDATE: The Beeb's Laura Kuenssberg tweets that the protestors are moving on to Tory HQ. Fun and games.
