Yes there is. The permanent determination of Lib Dems to be "centrist", no matter what the current political centre happens to be. I've been told, repeatedly, in LDV comments that I'm a mad extremist advocating policies that are far more extreme than the Lib Dems have ever supported and should be in a different party -- for wanting to keep freedom of movement. Which has always been party policy, which was specifically reaffirmed as policy this Spring, which was in the manifesto, and which was until June last year an absolutely mainstream view among *all* non-UKIP political parties.

The thing these utter fuckwits have never recognised is that if you have one side that thinks compromise is a good in itself and another that never compromises at all, what happens is that the compromising side says "well, I'll meet you halfway", and goes to halfway between the two positions. The other one doesn't budge (or moves even further away), and the compromise side again says "well, I'll meet you halfway" and moves halfway between the new position and the opponent's one.

A substantial proportion of the party -- including, it seems, a majority of our MPs -- see this as a feature, not a bug.
