Livingston and Cathcart by-elections: smears and spin
by Jabez Clegg

The Times is running a piece on the two Scottish by-elections. Labour Smear fights SNP smear, but check out the final paragraph for some Labour spin.

If you work on the basis that what Labour will be saying to the Times about their fears is the exact opposite of what they really think, then the conclusion seems to be that Labour are most worried about the Lib Dems and about Livingston.

    Hear, Hear! I couldn't have put it better myself. Devine is not carrying all the Robin Cook vote. This vote is not for Independence but for Liberty.

    A large number of people are constantly coming up to us saying they have voted for Robin but will be voting Lib Dem this time.

"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.
