Iain Dale asks "Where are the LibDems?" Putting aside the fact that some of our spokespeople have been pretty busy, e.g Vince Cable and Norman Lamb, this question would appear to assume that it is a good idea to hand over control of your party to someone like John Redwood for a month in the summer.
Martin Kettle gives a fair summary of the Redwood Commission proposals.
It is amazing that, according to a Tory shadow cabinet insider, Redwoods proposals were "significantly debugged" over several weeks prior to publication.
And yet, still "turning left at red lights" and "putting rubber wheels on trains" still survive in the package. One wonders what was taken out in the "debugging" process?
Of course, some of the proposals are serious, but one is left, as the Guardian leader comments, with the inescapable conclusion that Cameron has retreated from his "let sunshine win the day/family friendly" thrust and allowed the Vulcans to take over the Tory asylum.
