About

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.

My political philosophy is that people should be trusted and given control of their own destiny wherever possible and hence that both political and economic power should be devolved as far as possible.

Or, as Gladstone put it, “Liberalism is trust of the people tempered by prudence. Conservatism is distrust of the people tempered by fear”.
