Lib Dem no vote

It's a funny old day. The story was supposed to be about Europe, referendums and Gordon Brown's government.

Tomorrow's headlines may yet be about the Liberal Democrats and the party's new leader, Nick Clegg, who endured a bruising question time today.

His decision to order MPs to abstain tonight has upset some of those described as Lib Dem frontbenchers (a relative term, as they only occupy two and a half benches).

We're told to expect three resignations from members of Mr Clegg's top team, the sort of gesture guaranteed to get those leaving jobs the sort of publicity they can't get from actually doing the jobs.
