Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
OK, that's where I was leaning but hesitated to say.

The only thing the Tories can offer the Lib/Dems is PR.  Which would, most likely, split the Tories.

Clegg can offer to 'help' the Tories but not formally enter into some kind of informal pact/alliance/whatever which is the smart move?  He can do all kinds of "In these difficult times & etc. etc. blah-blah" while working to get PR through the Commons.  Actually becoming part of the government would be, I think, a mistake.  

Which implies a Tory minority government and another election in a year or so.
