LibDem International Office: Strengthening liberal democracies

GeorgiaAs an accredited party trainer I was intrigued to receive an email last week asking if I would like to provide some training for the  Republican Party in Georgia next month.

It took a moment to register that it was talking about the Georgia to the north of Turkey on the Black Sea and their Liberal party, not the one to the north of Florida and the GOP.

Now I have acted for the party in a similar capacity before, when I met the youthful members of the Liberal Democrat party in Serbia and tried to convince them that an election cannot be won entirely on the Web. Sadly I have a by-election to attend to next month so I will not be offering my services this time.

    David Allen I don’t think it’s “education, education, education”, I do think it’s “Clegg, Clegg, Clegg”. It’s Clegg, fees, Clegg, NHS, Clegg, bedroom tax, Clegg,...

    @T-J That is why it's a political mistake. By threatening me personally with a bill of over £2000 for Scottish independence, Salmond has changed the...
