Posh Tory defeated
by Peter

With the anniversary of the 1906 general election around the corner, I've been wondering how many of David Cameron's ancestors lost their seats to the Liberal landslide.

Only one identified so far - Sir William Mount who was kicked out by the voters of Newbury.

But some entertaining reading from the Times and Yorkshire Post.

"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.
