So, the Torygraph have printed an article which is going to piss off a lot of people in the Lib Dems. There are a couple of theories as to the source: one is that the parliamentary Lib Dems haven't thought through how controversial the idea is and have leaked it themselves because they are proud of it, and/or are running it up the flagpole to see who salutes. The other theory is that the tories know it will cause the Lib Dems to fight like cats in a sack and have leaked it and are right now popping corn. Dear reader, which of these theories do you think is more likely?

Can you give a summary of the proposal? I respect your reasons for not linking but would rather not give them more hits while I search for the article on their site ;-)

I suspect that a Lib Dem hoping for good publicity on this one wouldn't've started with the Telegraph. But who knows?

Other possibilities include someone (in either party or neither) trying to kill off the plans early by leaking them at a stage when they look least practical. I can't quite believe this plan was run past St. Vince.
