    James: Appreciate you giving us a subtle steer on your voting intentions in your answer.

    Admirer as I am of the honorable member for Eastleigh, I think that level of veneration is perhaps a little precipitous ...

    It would be interesting to see how far back we have to go to link these candidates with common ancestors.

    It was discovered that Margaret Thatcher and John Major (real name "Ball") are both descended from an 18th C Lincolnshire farmer called Michael Crust.

    And George Bush and Bill Clinton (real name "Blythe") are descended on the male side from 17th C immigrants born in the same village in Nottinghamshire (possibly Laxton, formerly Lexington).

"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.
