Global Security Fringe Meeting

There are no issues of greater importance than global security. War and climate change require us to seek better ways of managing our planet. Most people realise that what the old Liberal Party constitution called the 'warping influence of nationalism' which has raised it ugly and unwanted headed again militates against effective solutions to these matters.

At the fringe meeting David Grace had the job of summing up. He took the chance to re-state the case for federalism. 30 years of negative propoganda from Thatcher, Callaghan, and their ilk have meant that even when folk suggest federalist solutions they sky away from the name.

It does light the way to global security.

Post a Comment

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 Such postings will not be published.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 Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.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