Welcome to my day: 5 March – thoughts turn towards a future…

Well, I don’t know about you, but I’m glad that last week’s “Beast from the East” has passed. Whilst here in Mid Suffolk, the snow has now pretty much melted, there are still some of you digging yourselves out, and good luck to you.

But neither rain nor snow nor gloom of night prevents a Day Editor from performing their duties, so what have we got for you today?

We kick off with news of cross-party co-operation to oppose the impacts of Brexit, courtesy of the Party’s press team, and it will be interesting to see how tomorrow’s meeting goes.

At lunchtime, Lord Wallace of Saltaire (and you do have to get that right), offers some thoughts on the challenge wrought by migration policy for liberal thinking, which leads us neatly onto a preview this afternoon of the latest publication from the Social Liberal Forum.

On a lighter note, I’ll be covering an entertaining piece by Stephen Bush in the Guardian – not to be taken too seriously, but amusing all the same.

What else? Tahir Maher is back with some thoughts on rebalancing our economy, and I’m hoping to have news on the Italian elections, where there is a small, but potentially significant, liberal presence.

So, it’s back to work, and we’ll see how the day goes…
