As the Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg launches the Liberal Democrat party's local election campaign today, he will lump both Labour and the Tories together as he attacks their track record.
Despite all their stated differences, a vote for Labour or the Tories will be a vote for the same thing.
Their record in local government shows that even when millions of families are feeling the pinch, they'll both squander taxpayers' money on waste, inefficiency and their own vanity projects.
A vote for the Liberal Democrats, on the other hand, is a vote for a party which - wherever we're in power - does its best to spread the burden of austerity fairly, investing in jobs and help for hard-pressed families.
