A reminder: It’s Party awards time!

Maybe a political assistant to a councillor or someone who has supported a local MP in the hard work that they do.

But he may have met his match in Moore, as skilful in judging the politics of Whitehall as he is the mood of Scotland. It may be that, after the referendum, Moore will be counted the most successful Liberal Democrat in the Cabinet, and, even, the man who saved the United Kingdom.
