That Cameron Website
by Peter

First things first: it really is quite poor. I do not intend to say too much about how and why, because I do not wnat to help them improve it. Let us just say that no one with any real interest in policy is going to be convinced.

As GDH argues below, if Cameron is to show that the Conservatives have changed, then he will have to to offer a few rightwing policies up, and a few rightwingers to go with it. I canĀ“t see him doing this.

But in terms of linking policies, frankly I think we have something to learn. Too often our policies do not seem to link up. Our different policies seem to have been made by people with a passionate interest in one issue, rather than reflecting a coherent whole. We need to start showing how being a liberal viewpoint leads ssomeone to vote Liberal Democrat. That will probably mean thinking about how we make policy as well as how we present it.

"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.
