Just another day at Liberal Democrat Voice, as the day editor re-enacts a scene from Beau Geste…

Yes, it’s me again, I’m afraid. And after last week’s controversy over an article that never did get resubmitted by its author, we have more comment on Gaza. This time, I’ve published it, as I think each has something new to say. Do remember though, we pre-moderate all such stories given the propensity of some to make comments which bypass courtesy and place their towel firmly on abuse.

There appear to be even fewer of the team around this week – they’ve obviously taken David Allen’s advice to take a holiday to heart – so I’ve been asked to do another turn whilst things are quiet. So, whilst I attempt the editorial equivalent of propping corpses up against the battlements in attempt to fool the Tuaregs into believing that the fort is better defended than it might be, let’s see what I hope to cover today…

  • Shirley Williams expresses her view on Europe’s duty to Gaza
  • Andi Ali suggests some concrete action on Gaza for Her Majesty’s Government
  • there is news of the next ALDE Congress

And, you never know, something might happen during the day that sparks an article.

In the meantime, I hope that the remnants of Hurricane Bertha aren’t disrupting your day too badly, and welcome you to another beautiful day, here at LDV Towers…

    Have a pleasant, peaceful one!

    The controversy wasn’t about the article, it was about the editorial policy you outlined in the article.

  • Sorry, that should have read:
    The controversy wasn’t about the submitted article, it was about the editorial policy you outlined in your article.

  • Is there any chance you could persuade Stephen Tall to pen another article in his series of election predictions versus the latest ICM polling, which he holds to be a gold standard, now that it shows Labour 7 percent in front of the Tories?
