The BBC reports Liberal Democrat MP Tim Farron saying many Tory MPs are "toxic" and claiming David Cameron is using his coalition partners as "cover" for unpopular decisions.
Meanwhile, deputy leader Simon Hughes said his party would not have backed the government's academies bill if they had not been in the coalition. Liberal Democrat activists and some MPs are concerned about the party leadership's backing for a VAT rise, which they opposed at the general election, and cuts to school buildings programmes.
It all goes to strongly suggest principles have been sold out for a ministerial limo. Surely a betrayal of every Liberal Democrat voter. How the Liberals must fear the next ballot box.
