There has always been an element of cognitive dissonance to the Lib Dems’ collaboration with the Tories but Chief secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander really outdid himself this afternoon, telling World At One:

“We haven’t made any changes to tax rates in this parliament”

Yeah. No changes at all —  apart from that tax cut for millionaires which Alexander himself described as “cloud cuckoo land” before being overrulled by his boss, George Osborne.

The new Lib Dem strategy: just pretend it didn’t happen.
