Who can do what when
by Peter

Colin Ross is among those arguing for a common age threshold for all activities at 16 (the age one can marry).

As I have said before, marriage at sixteen does not appear a great thing to defend. (In any case, isnĀ“t parental permission required?). Nor do I look forward to seeing sixteen year-olds behind the wheels of HGVs.

"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.
