A breakdown in discipline
By Peter

I wouldn´t claim an encyclopaedic knowledge of Labour peers, but I have a professional interest in farm policy, and have heard Lord Haskins speak a few times. He is consistently impressive, in an "I´m not really a politician" sort of way. Danny Alexander did well to get him to help finance his campaign.

In human terms, one could feel sorry for this act getting Haskins into trouble with comradely peers. But on strictly partisan grounds, one can only hope they throw the book at him!

"What is Liberalism?: I should say it means the acknowledgment in practical life of the truth that men are best governed who govern themselves; that the general sense of mankind, if left alone, will make for righteousness; that artificial privileges and restraints upon freedom, so far as they are not required in the interests of the community, are hurtful; and that the laws, while, of course, they cannot equalise conditions, can at least avoid aggravating inequalities, and ought to have for their object the securing to every man the best chance he can have of a good and useful life." C-B.


The Apollo Project seeks to put together new ideas on policies and campaigning to help broaden the appeal and enhance the impact of the Liberal Democrats.
