We've Merged!
The Apollo Project has joined forces with Rob Knight's Liberal Review. Henceforth this site will be kept as an archive. For the new Apollo Project follow the link.

Liberal Review offers the best of Liberal opinion, commentary and ideas. We will continue with the best of Apollo, plus the Editor's review and Guest Blogs by various well-known Liberal and liberal contributors.

Rob will continue to round up the day's News, and there will be regularly updated Blogger Profiles. We will link to the best of Liberal thought, and also welcome contributions.

Liberal Review - what no Liberal should be without.

One death

* - strictly speaking I'm not sure if this qualifies as an "event"

Sour Grapes or Lemon?
by Jabez Clegg

Oh dear. It seems that David Cameron isn't very popular with the readership of the influential Tory blog Conservative Home. Most of the advice on what he should say in a speech in Manchester* tomorrow is less than complimentary.

My personal favourite:

"I come here to Manchester today with an apology and a big announcement. I stood for the leadership last year wildly overestimating my capabilities as a politician. Over the course of my short leadership I have felt out of my depth and this has begun to show through. I am sorry to the party for this, but today I am stepping down from the leadership and offer my full support to David David the man I think can make this party great again."

That would make my year if DC said that, mainly because it would be the right decision.

*Although we're surprised that the Notting Hill-billy knows where Manchester is.

"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.
