Key allies of party leaders Nick Clegg and Ed Miliband have met to discuss what the two parties have in common, BBC Newsnight has learned.The Labour peer Lord Adonis, and Lord Wood, one of Ed Miliband's closest advisers, met Jonny Oates, Clegg's chief of staff and Neil Sherlock, a prominent Liberal Democrat and donor.
The men met for dinner in April.
Members of the group deny the meeting constituted any kind of formal talks about a potential coalition government.
But others believe the meeting is significant as it suggests the two parties are considering how they might prepare for potential coalition in the event of a hung parliament at the 2015 general election.
But will the LibDems hold the power?
Tonights yougov poll would mean
44% Labour & LibDems
45% Conservatives & UKIP
Question is would UKIP steal some of the seats Labour need for Control of parliament and just how badly will the LibDems do?
