‘Over himself, over his own body and mind, the individual is sovereign.’
(John Stuart Mill, On Liberty, 1975, p.15)


'The Lib-Dems always miss out because their vote is so widely spread across different constituencies. And it is widely spread because they remain a party of indeterminate principle, offering a vehicle for a wide variety of protest votes. They will enjoy and deserve a surge in seats when we all know what they really stand for.'

Sounds fair enough to me, I'm quite partial to some of their policies but detest some others - I think that's true for most of the electorate.

I think the thing that clinches it for me is PR. I love the idea of a more representative parliament. I'm not that sure about the EU. Call it my protestant upbringing, but the fact the EEC came to being by the 'Treaty of Rome' and now the constitution again being signed in Rome, sounds like some Roman thing going on. But I can suspend my paranoia about Roman Catholic conspiracies, so long at they don't take us in blind, without a referendum. Thus they get my vote everytime.
