Weekly catchup

Previously, on Lib Dem Voice…

MP Lynne Featherstone penned us an article on the brittleness of British politics; Alisdair Murray fed back on how joint Lib/Lab meetings went at both our conference and theirs; Jeremy Hargreaves let us know about the Lib Dem Hospital Governor’s Network; Tom Papworth shared his views about tax; and Rob Blackie had a plea about the proposed Leadership Academy.

Editor at Large Stephen Tall was pleased that 187 of you dropped by with your views on the state of things at present – and we covered your views extensively in a series of posts you can find by clicking on this category link.

A big issue for Lib Dems this week has been the fall out from the robo-calling we did shortly after Clegg’s speech last week. Hywel Morgan thought we shouldn’t do it. Then the Guardian joined in.  Then so too did the Information Commissioner. Unsurprisingly, our readers had a lot to say on the issue, both in public and in our members only forum.

Our most commented item is, as often the case, the open thread on Question Time; and some of the biggest hits of the week have been to this story about Lembit and a threeway and happy news from by-election victories. And last but not least, Mark Pack pointed us at the pointlessness of uniform swing calculations, which brought out the psephology geeks in force.
