Humiliated Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg has vowed that his party will be much more 'muscular' in government as the coalition goes into its second year.
Clegg has announced a range of measures he intends to implement to demonstrate a change of emphasis in how the Lib Dems ministers deal with their Tory counterparts.
When the Coalition partners meet at Downing Street for policy meetings, the Lib Dems will no longer wait until David Cameron and co sit down - they will take their seats regardless.
When wanting to contribute to a conversation, Lib Dem ministers will no longer put their hand up and wait to be noticed, they will where necessary interrupt discussions in order to be heard.
And the most controversial of all - no more will Nick Clegg debase himself in front of the rest of the cabinet by being expected to take the minutes, fetch Cameron's tea and biccies or even wipe dry the Tory leader's appendage after he's done a widdle.
Strong stuff indeed.
