Tories And Lib Dems Have A Deal – Perhaphs Not
Earlier Sky News was announcing that Tories and Lib Dems have a deal:
Sky’s Joey Jones said: “The negotiations are entering the endgame.
Now the same article has changed completely:
Lib Dem negotiator David Laws said the parliamentary party had agreed that cutting the deficit must be at the heart of any deal and that there must be “strong and stable government”.
However, they wanted “clarification” on reforming the education system, on tax reform and on reform of the voting system, he said.
Lib Dem MPs also agreed that Mr Clegg should “listen further to the representations made by the Labour Party”, a spokesman added.
It came as Sky News sources suggested the Tories and Lib Dems had agreed the “outline” of a deal to form a new government.
