The best part of Nick Clegg’s speech: in defence of internationalism and liberal interventionism

with one comment

I enjoyed Nick Clegg’s speech to conference, which set out a clear path to Liberal Democrats remaining a party of government.

I thought his passionate defence of internationalism and liberal interventionism, drawing on his (Spanish) wife’s family history in pre-democratic Spain, was easily the strongest part. Here’s what he said:

via The best part of Nick Clegg’s speech: in defence of internationalism and liberal interventionism. 555 more words.

I have commented (currently awaiting moderation- though Nick Thornsby does not usually censor comments)-

“Is that like standing up for tuition fees; like being voiceless against the suffering of the poorest in our land; is the democracy he speaks of the kind where it works better if oiled with vast wealth?

I have said it from the beginning, the LibDems should pull out of this coalition and force an election now. But they won’t because if the Tories need them in 2015, they’re gonna be there, trampling over principle and promise, motive usurping manifesto to form another government so they can tell THEIR grandkids how Grandpa Nick led the Libdems to two terms of office.”

  1. Agree with you they broke all promises to get “HALF POWER” that has let Tories DECIMATE Britain & it’s Democracy. Never again shud they be voted for by British ppl. If the Left of their Party wants to save itself they shud join NATIONAL LIBERALS
