Election 2015

Collapse of the Liberal Democrats' "house of cards"

It's been a terrible evening for the Liberal Democrats – with the party losing 49 seats of the 57 they went in to the election with.

High-profile figures including Vince Cable, Danny Alexander and Charles Kennedy are all out – and leader Nick Clegg, who has been returned with a much smaller majority – will comment on his future in the next few hours.

Jeremy Vine looks now at the collapse of the party – and from what base it might be able to rebuild.
