"All of this sound familiar? - a well funded group of free market believers taking over a party" Birkdale Focus draws parallels between the Liberal Party history of the 1950s and the Liberal Democrats today.

Stephen Williams MP (Lib Dem, Bristol West) pays tribute to the Chartists.

Writing on the British Politics and Policy at LSE blog, Tim Bale, Professor of Politics at the School of Politics and International Relations at Queen Mary, University of London, looks at the disjunction between Tory preoccupations in Birmingham and the more fundamental challenges the party actually faces.
