The Tory leadership, Little Britain style
by Jabez Clegg

How Tuesday afternoon might look.

Lou: "So here's your ballot paper... you've got four choices. Now, which one are you going to vote for?"

Andy: "That one!" [points to Fox's name]

L: "Liam Fox. Now are you sure?"

A: "Yeah."

L: "But you said his aggressive American-style conservatism would keep the party out of power for a generation. You said Ken Clarke was the man who could appeal to the public."

A: "Yeah I know."

L: "So who do you want to vote for?"

A: "That one!" [points to Fox again]

L: "All right then." [marks X against Fox. Wheels Andy out of the ballot box to a fourth general election defeat]

A: "I want Ken Clarke!"

"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.
