Welcome to my day… 25 January (for the benefit of Mr Tyzack)

It would appear that these gentle introductions to Fridays have drawn some comment, and that not all of it is friendly. Ah well, c’est la vie…

Due to other commitments, and a very enjoyable dinner yesterday evening, of which more later, today is a little ‘seat of the pants’. So, what can you expect today (in no particular order)?

Sea otterWe intend to have a look at a possible gateway to drug policy reform, as Duncan Stott examines the position of khat. Naturally, with debate on our future in Europe is still bubbling away, Giles Goodall suggests that David Cameron might have done a little more research before raising Eurosceptic hopes, whilst David Thorpe suggests that we might like to turn our attention back to Ireland for some alternatives on economic policy.

Rachel Coleman Finch and her brother Jonny draw our attention to the effects of the 1% increase on some benefits, whilst my gallant colleague, Stephen Tall, has taken a look at Nick Clegg’s ‘mea culpa’ on capital spending.

There’ll also be more stuff on Europe, with bees on the agenda in Brussels, and we’ll be looking at what the Lords will be doing without Lords Reform to debate.

Finally, why the sea otter? We were accused, a few months ago, of having an attack dog and, having considered the matter, and rejected the idea of an attack koala (nasty creatures, in spite of their image), it was concluded that, as a representation of our comments policy, an attack sea otter was probably the best reflection of our philosophy as an editorial team.

And here’s a video for you to watch which might explain why… (skip the advert)

Welcome to my day…

It’s your bright-eyed and furry-tailed day editor here, with a preview of what’s coming up today here at Liberal Democrat Voice. Admittedly, I’m quite possibly not awake – the advantage of pre-scheduling, I guess.

It’s an international sort of a day, with the noble Lord Avebury writing on the latest outrages against human rights in Bahrain, Bill le Breton drawing an analogy with events in Japan, and Kirsten de Keyser suggesting that what Denmark can do, perhaps we ought to. I’ve even posted a video nasty from Strasbourg… well, nasty …
