After all, the Lib Dems are now in government – and at the Treasury the man wielding the axe will be Lib Dem Chief Secretary, Danny Alexander. It’s bound to make many Lib Dem activists feel uncomfortable. We’ve been talking to a leading Lib Dem activist, Stephen Tall, who runs the website, Lib Dem Voice.
