The way he sees it...
The FT has a piece with the snappy headline Fact-finding Middle East trip could help develop Brown's world view.

This takes some believing. I find it hard to imagine that anything has happened in the last fifteen years that could have affected Brown's world view (one meal in Islington apart, you understand). There is an air of assumed infallibility to Brown that the Pope probably envies. So I donĀ“t think the trip to the Middle East was ever going to have much impact upon Britain's apprentice PM.

But anyway the risk of Brown changing his mind about someting has disappeared. No sooner had he kissed the tarmac (tbc) at Ben Gurion airport than he was back on another plane to vote for locking people up - without trial or charge - for three months.

"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.
