Newspapers from across the political divide are united in their belief that the Liberal Democrats have been a force for good in government.
In their editorials, national titles recognise the Liberal Democrats' achievements in government and the stability the party has brought to the country in the last five years.
The newspapers also acknowledge that with the inevitability of a hung parliament, the Liberal Democrats will anchor Britain in the centre ground and stop a lurch to the right or the left.
- The Independent: Many of the Government’s achievements are owed to the Liberal Democrats. The party has been “a force for progress”. The Coalition deserves another chance.
- The FT: The country would benefit from Liberal Democrat “moderation” in Westminster” – in seats where the Lib Dems are challenging “we would vote tactically for them.”
- The Guardian: “...the next Commons would be enhanced by the presence of Lib Dem MPs.” Vote for the Liberal Democrats in Tory-facing seats.
- The People: Lib Dems tempered Tory excess and delivered the last government’s greatest success with a tax-free allowance worth £800.
Everybody knows that no one will win Thursday's election outright, so the big question you face is: who do you want influencing the next Government?
