Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
But there is a huge inertia built into the FPP system. You have vast swathes of the UK where Labour pretty much doesn't exist, and elections are between a Libdem and a Tory. Likewise, in other regions it's Labour vs Libdem. Even if the Libdems lose practically all their seats in the next election, this will still be the case, and they will undoubtedly bounce back some time in the future, barring an unlikely change in the electoral system (PR, ironically, might marginalise them more durably).
