The Liberal Democrats face electoral oblivion at the next election if they do not set out a clear new identity different from that last time round, according to Richard Reeves, Nick Clegg's former director of strategy.
Speaking to the Today programme, he said the big question that the party faces is "less one of personnel around Nick's leadership of the party... but who are we as a party".
"The big choice is to make the identity more distinct... from the two other parties," he said.
On whether the party could make a deal with Labour at the next general election, he said that purely on a political basis, such a deal "would fail".
