Liberty

For those of you who saw ‘Vox Politix’ on 18 Doughty Street last night, I hope you agree that Shami Chakrabati was brilliant. I saw her in a new light. I think Iain was right; on Question Time or the Today programme you only get a few minutes to get your point accross, but to listen to her for over an hour, I discovered what an intelligent, persuasive person she is. All Conservatives should be interested in our liberty. Tony Blair’s government is determined to tell us how to live our lives and erode our liberties in the process. I am going to check out the ‘Liberty’ website and join-up. She has convinced me and I am sure the majority who watched the programme last night.

I posted the above on Friday 3 November 2006. I really didn’t know what I was doing a year ago, but I thought the idea was good. What has happened since then has been amazing. I have so many blogging friends and thanks to Praguetory, I met up with Andrew Percy and got working for him in the local elections this year.

This weekend I will be republishing some of my older posts and looking back at the previous twelve months.

  1. I’ve been half-meaning to join Liberty for years, back from when it was the National Council for Civil Liberties.

  2. Congratulations Andrew, this blogging thing is quite the journey.

  3. Thanks for the hat tip. Well done on the milestone.
