Disunity in liberalism 2010
by Peter

At the risk of upsetting regular leaders, I have to reveal that I didn't entirely go along with the appeal launched by Steve Travis, calling on Paddy to resume the leadership.

But it was good to hear Paddy on the radio this morning, and Steve is certainly correct to judge this a most fortunate time for Paddy to become available for renewed service. I hope that he will be visible in the months to come, a reminder of Lib Dem continuity.

    In all seriousness, Paddy reminds me of disunity, of secret backroom plots, an attempt by a party leader to bypass his entire party by initiating merger talks with another party leader and after months of strenuous denial, earning a fat fee from Rupert Murdoch for confessing all.

    Not very happy memories!

"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.
