The Lib Dems are struggling to capitalise on the crisis in British politics

The Liberal Democrats are holding their party conference in Bournemouth this week.

Despite coming out of the expenses scandal with a relatively clean sheet compared to the two main parties, the party has been struggling to keep up in the polls.

Support for the Lib Dems remains stable, but there is little sign of improvement.

The last week has seen frenzied activity from the party, with Treasury spokesman Vince Cable publishing the cuts the party would make to public spending if they attained power and leader Nick Clegg trying to reclaim the mantle of 'progressives' from the Tories.
