With Eastleigh and Lord Rennard to deal with, there was little sign on the Commons benches of the coalition's junior partner.
Health questions. The Lib Dem benches were almost empty. No doubt their MPs were in Eastleigh, desperate to hold on to their slim poll lead, or else investigating Lord Rennard, or, for all I know, engaging in "inappropriate behaviour", which may include getting your wife to take your speeding points. What busy bees they are! They have far too much going on to waste time hanging round Westminster.
