New issue of Liberator out

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 12:04:44 +0000

Issue 387 of Liberator is on its way to subscribers. Find out with our two free articles from this issue why Paul Hindley thinks the Lib Dems have chosen irrelevance over outspokenness despite being on only 7.4% of the vote, and Tony Greaves’ explanation of why Liberalism needs its capital L. Also in this issue: […]

What a start of a new coalition! D66 both the biggest (Dutch) progressive and the biggest Liberal party

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 10:32:08 +0000

In my previous postings about the D66 contribution on entering the new Dutch coalition government (here and here), I noted that D66 surprised everybody in Dutch politics by being able to have some profiling, and indubitably progressive programmatic points in the coalition agreement. Also, D66 was the main provider of women (cabinet) ministers; and they […]

20 November – “let’s be careful out there…”

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 23:59:48 +0000

So, thank you for taking some of your time to join us here at Liberal Democrat Voice today. Perhaps because I don’t take politics quite as seriously as some, I’m minded to end the day on a more relaxed note. So, in a nod to today’s Transgender Day of Remembrance, here’s a US band called […]

Ten reasons why we wrote Fourth to First

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 16:15:43 +0000

I confess to knowing very little about anything – in particular political campaigning. But one thing I can talk about at length is how we did it in a small rural patch of North Norfolk (six shops, four pubs, two petrol stations and zero towns), going from fourth position last time to first in May […]

Paradise Papers: perhaps tax ought to be more taxing?…

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 12:52:44 +0000

Older readers may remember me, the first face of the Inland Revenue, as voiced by Sir Alec Guinness. I may be a distant memory, but I never left my desk. The news in the lead up to this week’s Budget has been coloured by the Paradise Papers, as noted by David Becket in the comments […]

This week in the Lords: 20-24 November… how much is that doggy in the window?

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 11:02:26 +0000

It’s a long week, although we’re not expecting much drama in terms of voting until the New Year. The next few weeks are about clearing the decks whilst the EU Withdrawal Bill weaves its increasingly uncertain way through the House of Commons. Monday sets the tone, with only Day 5 of the Committee Stage of […]

A message from the Chair of LGBT+ Liberal Democrats

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 08:39:20 +0000

* Editorial note: as indicated earlier, all comments on this piece will be moderated before publication. Today, as always on the 20th of November we at LGBT+ Lib Dems, along with many other organisations around the world, are observing Transgender Day of Remembrance. This is the twentieth year when one of the biggest events in […]

Welcome to my day – 20 November… the Transgender Day of Remembrance

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 08:00:15 +0000

A rather more sombre opening to this Monday, in deference to the day being marked today. To be honest, I’m not proposing to add much to that introduction, as I suspect that I wouldn’t have much of value to add. There will be an article dedicated to the day, and I would ask any commenters […]

LibLink: Jo Swinson on “Sexual harassment: a chance for change”

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 16:21:44 +0000

Embed from Getty Images Jo Swinson has published an article on Medium titled “Sexual harassment: a chance for change“. She writes: Many people have been shocked by recent revelations about the extent of sexual harassment in politics. Sadly to many of us it does not come as a shock, but we have welcomed the focus on […]

The Progressive Alliance Needs Mothers’ Voices

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 16:30:30 +0000

I am launching a group called ‘Mothers for a Progressive Alliance’ with the backing of Compass on Saturday 18 November in Central London and am inviting Lib Dem members to attend to contribute to the discussion. The concept of the Progressive Alliance gained prominence during the Richmond Park by-election in 2016 when Sarah Olney won the […]
