Top Liberal at Southport

'A reception at the Cambridge Hall at which 2000 guests are expected, the stage exquisitely embellished with flower, the 50 strong Southport Choral Union and a special programme rendered by the Corporation Band.....'*

Well that is what welcomed Asquith in 1909 when he visited Southport for the National Liberal Federation Annual meeting. I wonder how it will compare to welcome given to Chris Huhne when he comes in 2009?

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
