Right now, the leaders would contend that this has been a single vote over a contentious issue that can be fixed. ie keep calm and carry on.
Reality intrudes and points out these two Constitutional changes were the last items on the agreed list and that the two parties do not have an agreed agenda, or even items they might agree upon to form an agenda for the government's future legislative programme.
So, the coalition has collapsed, but whether there will be a formal point where Nick clegg says "we are crossing to the opposition benches and will vote against you from here on" is another thing. Right now I imagine that could well be discussed at the party conference in september, but till then we have a parliamentary recess during which who knows what fun might ensue.
