A vote for the Lib Dems could check the Tories

"The choice you have to make at any particular election has to take into account the precise conditions of the time. I've never been tribal in politics and in different elections have voted for at least six different parties, including all the main ones. Right now, the main choice is between a majority Conservative government and some other alternative. Since the first prime ministerial debate, that alternative is just not going to be a majority Labour government. If it were, it would be one crippled by a lack of legitimacy, as Labour is clearly not going to be the largest party on the popular vote. So, realistically, it's a hung parliament or a Conservative government. So what do you do?"
