Liberal Democrats agree with Labour takeover policy

The Liberal Democrat party today issued its manifesto for the up and coming general election and one policy which caught the eye of observers was a proposal to change takeover laws in the UK along the lines of those already announced by the Labour Party. It seems as though the Liberal Democrats and Labour party are both looking to protect Great Britain plc while the Conservative party has suggested it would make no changes to the current takeover laws which have been around for some time.

Aside from the fact that this are now two parties looking to protect UK businesses in the longer term, it is the very fact that the Liberal Democrats could hold sway at the election if a hung parliament occurs which is important. The more policies that the Labour Party and the Liberal Democrats have in common the more chance that Nick Clegg will jump into bed with Gordon Brown come election results day. So where does this leave the Tory party?

Even though the Conservative party has polled the greatest support for many months in various opinion polls there is some debate as to whether the current figure equates to a majority or a hung parliament. The UK election is getting more exciting!
