So when, the next day, BBC Question Time put together a panel, you would expect that a representative of both sides would secure at least one place.
Certainly room was found for UKIP - but as so often is the case, no seat for the Lib Dems. Unbelievable.
The standard excuse, when given, is that now we are a party of government, the government's view can be represented by a Tory as much as a Lib Dem. This is, of course, nonsense. But especially so on this occasion as
a) The Tories chose not to be in the debate and
b) The producers found room for not one, but two Tories - Justine Greening and Simon Wolfson, who is a Tory peer.
They also found seats for not only a representative of the Labour Party (Dianne Abbott) but also a Labour supporter and donor, Mick Hucknell.
So, 2 Tories, 2 Labour, one UKIP invited to to discuss the debate of the week.
Just as gobsmacking is BBC Question Time's refusal to engage on Twitter with anyone asking what on earth they were thinking? Unlike, to their credit, BBC This Week, as the exchange below demonstrates.
The Lib Dems still remain under represented on Question Time - with just 7 guests in the 12 weeks the programme has aired in 2014. But this weeks omission on any Lib Dem panellist is the most grievous omission to date.
We should demand some answers.
