Liberal Democrats: coalition, polls and 2015 election


Liberal Democrats have lost lost hundreds of local councillors, dropped behind UKIP in some polls and lost their deposit at three Westminster by-elections.

Giles Dilnot gauged how the party is looking towards the 2015 general election and what members think it should do amid claims of it being asleep, in shock and in trauma.

He spoke to Lib Dem peer Lord Greaves, former Lib Dem turned Labour councillor James Allie, and to Gareth Epps, a former party worker and candidate.
