Gentle reader, away from the pastures of the FT, Telegraph and Guardian there are other smaller papers, with fewer words and larger headlines.

Among these is one known as the Mirror. Today it reports on the close relationship between the Parliamentary representatives of New Labour and the Mod Cons under the headline TORY MP WALLOPS LABOUR MP.

The cause of all this was an e-mail, sent by the office of Philip Davies MP (Con, Shipley), which read

"Tomorrow Philip will be on Talksport from 12-1 with Steven (sic) Pound and Simon Hughes. Please let members know so they can call in and support Phil."

A pity this brawl was not televised. It might have done much to revive interest in politics.

"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.
