Guru-Murthy was spot-on, and I suspect the PR and public affairs professionals at our party will have woken up the next day wondering what the increased reality of a role for the Lib Dems means for them.
Well, if a hung Parliament is en route, here are a few questions to test whether any lobbyist worth his or her salt is ready for a key role for the Lib Dems. What do you believe the Federal Executive will think about the different options for a coalition? Do you know which of the overtures of Labour and the Tories is closer to the Federal Policy Committee's heart? Do you have a view on what Duncan Brack is thinking? Or the issues that Baroness Scott will balance as she considers hung-Parliament scenarios and counsels Clegg?
For many, these questions may provoke nothing more than a blank look. But if that is the case, then it betrays a failure to understand key Lib Dem party machinery that will be central to deciding any Lib Dem position on a coalition.
Business people: test your agencies and ask them these questions. For Lib Dem experts, maybe there is some money to be made writing the Haynes Manual of Liberal Democrat machinery.
