Peter Hain: Labour could form coalition with Lib Dems

Former Welsh Secretary Peter Hain has suggested that Labour could form a coalition with the Liberal Democrats if it fails to win an overall majority at the next general election.

Writing in the Independent on Sunday, the Neath MP suggests majority single-party governments may become the exception in a future where coalitions are semi-permanent fixtures.

But he told Vaughan Roderick on BBC Radio Wales' Sunday Supplement that Labour could still win an overall majority.
