33. I think the LibDems will start rebelling more after May
By that time, the referendum on the voting system (which is a particular concern of the LDs though I think it should be a concern for everyone!) will be decided one way or another; and there are likely to be massive Tory and LD losses in the Council elections and those for the Scottish and Welsh Assemblies.

It will take some time for the Tories to destroy *everything*, and I don't think they'll be able to - they've already got more fight from the public than they bargained for, and are going down in the polls. But they may destroy too much.

FWIW, some people whom I know, not usually ultra-optimists, are convinced that the government won't last more than another year - let us hope that they are right!
