The Conservatives and Lib Dems have reached an outline deal according to Sky News
The Tories and Lib Dems have agreed the “outline” of a deal to form a new government according to Sky sources.
Sky’s Joey Jones said: “The negotiations are entering the endgame.
“The outline of a deal is there but the party hierarchies now have to go back to their MPs and put the deal to them.
“Things are moving quickly and once this afternoon’s meetings have taken place I think we could see things changing very, very swiftly.”
Earlier negotiators from both parties said there had been “further progress” in talks.
So all that remains is to prise Gordon Brown out of the No 10.
The story in The Telegraph about a future Conservative Government jacking up taxes on motorists is untrue says Shadow Chancellor George Osborne on the BBC Radio 4 show Today.
The Telegraph were told the story was wrong but went ahead and printed it anyway.
