Opponents and enemies
by Jabez Clegg

There is an old story of a young newly-elected Conservative MP sitting down in the Chamber for the very first time. Gazing across at the Labour and Liberal benches opposite, he muttered to his neighbour, a verteran knight of the shires that it was "good to get a sight of the enemy".
"Enemy?" replied his neighbour. "They are not the enemy. They are our opponents. You will find your enemies are all on this side of the House."

Was that young man Michael Ancram?

"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.
