Liberal Youth and the future

I see that the Liberal Youth new exec has been election. Congratulation to Birkdale's own Sarah Harding on being elected as Policy Officer. Due to Sarah's hyper active twitter account I was aware of her achievement even before Lib Dem Voice carried the news.

Sarah Harding is pictured here with lauren Keith who was our excellent candidate in Cambridge Ward this May. Sarah and Lauren were amongst a group of young people who worked very hard during the General Election. Regular readers will have seen pictures of Lauren's 'Thank You' party that was held on Saturday.

It all take me back to my time as Political Vice Chair of NLYL in 1974/5. But there has been enough nolstalgia recently particularly the other weekend in Cambridge when David Grace was celebrating his 60th birthday. I well recall David's put down to a detractor who reviewing his early glitering achievement opined that the problem with DG was that he had peaked too early-'Oh no I didn't, I've not finished yet!' he replied. So let us look to the future and with the likes of Lauren and Sarah we have every reason to do so with confidence.

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 Such postings will not be published.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 Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.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.
