Conservative MP blasts 'dishonourable' Lib Dems

Conservative MP Peter Bone has launched a scathing attack on the Liberal Democrats, saying that they have broken their pledge over boundary changes:

The only honourable thing the Liberal Democrats can do tonight when they do not vote with the Conservative members, is they should resign from the Government and cross the floor of the House.

If they have any principle, any honesty with them, that is what they have to do."

The only issue the party had to deal with, would we allow a vote on AV in return for the Liberal Democrats supporting us on boundary reviews, that was the deal breaker.

Our party kept to that deal, they've gone back, they are a disgrace and should be over there.
