Ros Scott’s party president report, March 2009

Those of you wishing to find out what Lib Dem party president Baroness Ros Scott has been up to in the past month (or so) can sate your curiosity over at her Because Baronesses are people too blog. Here’s an excerpt to entice you:

March was dominated by my first Federal Conference as President and, whilst I didn’t have a setpiece speech to give – that will have to wait until September – I was still pretty busy. Opening and closing Conference, giving the Federal Executive Report, chairing Kirsty Williams’ speech (and wasn’t that a barnstormer?) plus handing out the membership awards was quite enough to start off with. I also got to spend some quality time with Governor Howard Dean.

I’m confident that our emphasis on young people, and detailed policy positions on childcare and education, place us at the forefront of the debate. Whilst the recession and how best to deal with it should be uppermost in our thinking, we mustn’t forget the future, and ensuring our economic prosperity going forwards.

  • She has been an awful choice. Bland and anonymouse. Just what we did not need.

    After scanning websites and google I cannot find information about joining the party or how to become active within the party. Can you please help? Send information?

    Is 63 years of age too old, as it is with many employers and organisations, to be involved in politics?

    Thanks in anticipation,

    Graham Wilkinson
