Having said that...

... my money is still on a minority Tory government with non-belligerence from the Lib Dems.

The LDs have too much to lose either way - the Lib-Lab coalition wouldn't look good and probably wouldn't survive (Labour have ruled out governing with the SNP). But, the Tory-LD coalition is stuck on huge policy and ideological difference, plus the fact that the Tories could effectively marginalize the LDs and challenge them to bring the government down, making Clegg look either weak or irresponsible.

You heard it here first.
