A weekly catchup

A regular criticism of Lib Dem Voice – and the blog format in general – is that on fast moving days, readers can miss the good stuff. For that reason, we’re introducing a short, snappy Monday-morning round-up of last week’s top posts.

We kicked last week off with an extract from the Dictionary of Liberal Thought about Community Politics.

Two of our MPs penned articles for site: Lynne Featherstone on the dilemma of the placebo and Steve Webb promoting the party’s campaigning effort on climate change. We heard from Duncan Brack, chair of the Federal Conference Committee about conference in Liverpool early next month.

The highest numbers of comments were attracted by two posts about the BBC’s Question Time – the first with findings about political balance on the programme and the second our weekly open thread to discuss the programme as it happen, and to dissect it afterwards. You – our readers – also kept posts from previous weeks alive, including Clegg: I’m an economic liberal.

Our coverage of the London mayoral election gave us news about Ken’s staff, a sneak preview of the next London-wide leaflet, advance warning of an in-depth interview with Brian Paddick, and the insider story of Boris’s campaign launch.

In our “Op-Eds” category, Richard Wilson wrote about CCTV, Kerry Hutchinson made a pitch for the Lib Dem Friends of Palestine, and just yesterday, Marilyn Mason asked the killer question, how liberal are liberals supposed to be?

Remember – it’s your Lib Dem Voice. If you don’t like our balance of coverage, you can always write an article for us yourself. That’s a handy tip also for those of you who sometimes find yourselves writing comments that span to hundreds of words – sometimes it might serve the debate better if you penned us an article instead!
