Lib Dems were doomed to years of irrelevance in 2015 beyond the obvious limitations of being a 3rd party in a 2 party system.
Labour have spent the last few years abandoning moderate centre left policies and now the Tories are lurching further and further to the right leaving a gaping chasm in both the the centre left and centre right
If politics were business there is a whole gap in the market begging to be filled. Labour and Tory may find themselves the equivalent of a high street record shop if they're not careful. Largely a thing of the past with a few remnants catering to a niche market.
Don't you think the Lib Dems would have filled the gap by now if they were capable of doing so?
Still one of the utter mysteries for me is how they've managed to stay invisible during a period when they were the only 'mainstream' party advocating a point of view on the EU shared by a large chunk of the electorate, and the other two parties exhibiting utter incompetence.
Maybe it's down to utter incompetence?
A distinct possibility. It seems to be a feature of both Labour and the Conservatives too, to varying degrees.
