Now living in the north of England, I’m a lifelong liberal and founder member of the Liberal Democrats
This blog is a response to my deep frustration at the Party’s inability over many years to develop a coherent narrative and to graduate from a party of protest to a party of government.
Accordingly, my aim is to challenge political correctness, tired orthodoxy and groupthink – in short to bring a Liberal Eye to bear on issues that interest me.
Or, as Gladstone put it, “Liberalism is trust of the people tempered by prudence. Conservatism is distrust of the people tempered by fear”.
