On the subject of "love in"s Lib Dem activists have backed the new Coalition deal "overwhelmingly" according the the BBC. This goes some way to filling the expected cracks facing the party exemplified by Charles Kennedy's interview with the Observer this morning.CK was critical of the direction of travel.

We have some time to do that but some quick wins would be welcome.
