AS THINGS stand it is odds on that we will have another coalition government come next May, with Labour leading it, and the clamour from the Conservative from their backbenches and grassroots for the Tories to do an election “deal” with UKIP will become so strong that even David Cameron will have to succumb to these calls.

What’s the betting that if this happens, Labour and the LibDems will also come to some arranged “pact”, especially in Tory marginal seats?

It could well be fun and games over the next nine months for us cynical touchline spectators.
