Both in public and private Lib Dems are letting it be known that they will veto large chunks of the Health Bill – and portray it as a victory for their influence in Government.

Did Tupperware invent social networking?

Number 606 in my series of Questions to Which the Answer is No,* is asked by the Daily Mail (seems to be website only).
