I agree with the hon. Gentleman. We must work together to find ways in which to overcome Liberal Democrat opportunism.

I dispute the view of Mr. Thomas that I am not making a serious point. It is immensely serious. I am drawing attention to the contrast between words and actions. Liberal Democrats' words on other subjects such as nuclear power are meaningless if they are not matched by actions that give them at least a hypothetical basis of rationality.
