David Cameron is secretly planning for a second coalition, according to the new Spectator. In this week’s View from 22 podcast, James Forsyth and Miranda Green discuss the possibility of another Conservative-Liberal Democrat coalition after the general election. Would it be more difficult than it was five years ago to strike a deal? Will the Conservative party back Cameron if he falls short of a majority and decides against a minority government? And why is 30 MPs the magic number for the Liberal Democrats to enter into another coalition?

Fraser Nelson and Alex Massie discuss our interview with Alex Salmond and his plans to hold Ed Miliband’s feet to the fire. Instead of doing a coalition deal with Labour, will Salmond’s plan to bleed Miliband dry work? And is he confident that the SNP will play a significant role at Westminster after the election?


Plus, Philip Delves Broughton and Christian May debate the pros and cons of the sharing economy. Are startups like Uber and Airbnb creating social problems or offering better products for consumers?
