Four in 10 people who say they voted Lib Dem would not have done so had they expected the party to actually wield some power.
"This isn't what I voted for at all!", exclaimed Bob Cross from Kingston, "By placing my X in the Lib Dem box I was just advocating anyone but the Tories. After all, I couldn't admit to supporting Labour in this area as I'd be viewed as a bit of a crank."
Peter Llewellyn of Cardiff was equally irritated, "It was such a laugh being condescending to other parties as we dreamed up crowd-pleasing policies funded by imaginary money. But that's all it was ... a laugh!"
In Chester, Mary Hubbyknowsbest added, "My Derek said that the Lib Dems knew how to painlessly solve the country's problems without fear of being elected and disproving it. I feel cheated."
Meanwhile, Dick Puddlecote of Puddlecoteville was rather blunt. "See, the problem with Lib Dems is that only a precious few of them understand what the word Liberal actually fucking means. So this level of disillusion in the face of harsh reality doesn't come as much of a surprise, to be honest.".
