Not much to put up today as I’m just in from Westminster, having witnessed the implosion of the Liberal Democrats as a force in British Politics. Lots of tasteless jokes in circulation as you can imagine... “Don’t let the **** get you down” and “In the Liberal party, it’s best to keep your back against the wall.”
Now it’s a question of who picks up the tattered remains of the party in the years before the next election unless there’s some kind of miraculous resurrection. All this twenty-five years after the birth of the SDP, for which so many people, including me, as a speech writer for David Owen, had such high hopes.
It does seem a rather long time ago... in politics that is!
