Welcome to my day: 26 March 2018 – everyone loves a parade…

So, the big weekend of pro-Remain parades is over, with a weekend of Liberal Democrat campaigning still to come. And whilst the Government continues to flounder in the face of all of the things it was warned about, there is still no apparent sign that they will do anything other than keep on going, in the hope that it will be alright on the night. Besides, with a Leader of the Opposition almost as committed to freeing the country from the supposed restrictions placed upon us as the Conservatives are, there is little risk of defeat.

Hope springs eternal though, and whilst Liberal Democrats live and breath, the voice of those who believe in a collaborative future can be heard.

Here at LDV Towers, today offers a chance to reflect on the events of the past week. First up, I take the opportunity to urge the Party to be more thoughtful of others in the light of the statement of support that never was. And, later on, Mark Argent wonders about the state of the Labour Party’s internal dynamic on Brexit.

We’ve also got a report from Duncan Black on last week’s Federal Policy Committee meeting, which may answer some of the questions you might have asked had you known that you could.

Otherwise, we’ll see what comes in, and what happens during the course of the day. So, stay tuned and do join in the debate!
