Our day out in Liverpool
The children enoyed themselves yesterday on their class visit to Liverpool.

They even got their photograph in a local newspaper.

This is what they said:

Voters deserted the Tories in droves in the 1980s, blaming Margaret Thatcher's policies for Liverpool's decline - and most have never returned.

The party has no MPs in Merseyside and no city councillors.

Last week, the Tory candidate was beaten into last place by the British National Party at a council by- election in Waterloo.

That was very exciting!

But there was a surprise for us

"I cannot say everyone I met was a card-carrying Conservative member!!!"
I told the nice man from the local paper. (Fortunately he didn't interrupt me the way some of them do - although he did find it hard to understand my accent).

Everything went rather well. Most of the children were well behaved, although some of them did mutter rather a lot on the way back home.

"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.
