"It's just not fair. I know Nick Clegg said before the election that savage cuts were necessary, and that the Lib Dems would cut the deficit sooner and faster than Labour, but I never expected him to follow through on it" said one voter who said he was going back to Labour because he wanted to "feel nice about being roughly on the left of politics but never achieving anything".
Many former Labour voters who swung to the Lib Dems at the last election are said to be fuming that the policies they voted for, like a higher income tax threshold, a pupil premium and scrapping of ID cards were actually becoming law. "If I'd know these headline policies from their manifesto were going to become law, I'd never have voted for them" said another disgruntled voter who didn't want his name used because he couldn't spell it.
One former Labour voter, however, was genuinely happy with his Lib Dem vote. "They appear to be about to break their pledge on tuition fees which is just like what Labour did in 2001 and I remember being Labour in 2001 and they were such fun times. Yep, I'm staying with this lot for the time being. The tuition thing is like a home-from-home."
Latest poll ratings show those going back to Labour being 50% petulant, 27% media influenced and 100% disinterested in the facts.
