Quotation of the week (#ge10 edition)

If you wanted to talk to the Lib Dems about electoral reform they were absolutely open to the conversation.

If you wanted to talk to them about public service reform. If you wanted to talk to them about the hard issues on the economy. If you wanted to talk to them about the difficult questions that government is actually about.

They weren’t up for it. That was the problem.

Electoral reform doesn’t change the nature of the decisions: on the economy, on public services, on welfare, on anything.

Before I tell you who said that, just consider first whether you agree with it.

Now, it was this chap speaking on Newsnight on Tuesday.
