Another switch by the Lib Dems

It’s getting hard to keep up. I noted a few days two examples of the Lib Dems doing something in government that was the opposite of what they campaigned for: the McKinnon extradition case and the Digital Economy Bill/Act.

To that list we can now add the like-for-like replacement of Trident, as reported by John Rentoul:

Last night, the Liberal Democrats voted in the House of Commons precisely for the “like-for-like” replacement of Trident against which they campaigned in the election.
