Citius, Altius, Fortius
by Steve Travis

Some of you may recognise the motto of the Olympic Games (Faster, Higher, Stronger). We need to take this on board as we look beyond the Leadership Election.

Much virtual ink is being used penning the virtues of the various candidates, both here in the blogosphere and also in the MSM. Sometimes it is fair, sometimes it personal, sometimes inaccurate.

There are signs that people are becoming tetchy. We have another three weeks of this still to go - perhaps its time to start looking ahead.

There is no doubt that Dunfermline was one in the eye for all of our opponents, especially those who were writing our obituaries as a serious political force. Hence it is vital that we do not lost the focus on our unity if purpose over the coming months. Soon, we will have a new leader, and it is the duty of all of us, regardless of opinion, to continue to drive forward the cause of Liberalism.

If at any time your spirit wavers, read, listen or view what the MSm are saying about us. Then go forward with renewed vigour!

"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.
