Reasons to be cheerful...
by Peter

It has been a rough week. But here are some reasons for Lib Dems to be cheerful.

1. Labour are giving Lord Haskins an ASBO, and telling him he canĀ“t sit with them anymore. Surely our chaps could offer to budge up a bit? (But first Haskins will offer the excuse that Lady Haskins wrote the cheque.)

2. Labour will have even more space on their benches as Lord Watson pleads guilty to playing with matches (but what was Blair doing in Iraq?). This will lead - apparently - to a by-election in Glasgow Cathcart (aka known as Glasgow South.

3. The Tories may be on the verge of electing David Davis as Leader. Or Ken Clarke. Or David Cameron...

4. For at least another week, England will be leading in an Ashes series...

"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.
