If the Tories offer a referendum then I wouldn’t be surprised.
I don’t see a Labour/LD/SNP coalition holding together for too long. Just enough time for a Brexit referendum and then back to a General Election I reckon.
That's fine in my opinion. Brexit needs to be sorted once and for all, a decision and deal signed either way. Then let's have another election which can be based on the domestic agenda.
Most of the people I know that vote Lib Dem would be horrified to end up in coalition with the Tories again. I don't see Boris ever offering a referendum at this point. Even if he has absolutely no other option, I think he would go for another election.
The Lib Dems are at a point where they have almost recovered from the coalition. If they go into another one with the Tories, I think they will lose another generation of young voters.
