If a tree has a rotten branch, you don’t cut down the whole tree. If it badly damaged but still alive, you cut it back and it will grow again, with new stronger branches.
The Coalition’s policies, a lot of which are Lib Dem led, are multiple and widespread, like the branches of a tree.
The tuition fee fiasco may have been equivalent to that rotten branch, it doesn’t mean you cull the whole of the Liberal Democrat Party!!
A portion of the tree may have died, the whole tree didn’t!!!
(Am still proud to be a Lib Dem…)
