A brief snippet appeared today with my byline in the Indy here:
Stephen Tall, Co-editor of the ‘LibDem Voice’ blog
“It is absolutely a red line for Liberal Democrat members. I don’t think they are going to be bought by the same committee of enquiry that was offered by the Tories in 1974. We would not want to run the risk of giving up our independent voice in the Commons for that. Electoral reform is an absolute deal-breaker and the devil will be in the detail of what is offered. We need to see a significant concession. I think it is well understood by the leadership that we need a referendum as a bare minimum.”
I’m labelled a ‘Reformer’ alongside Richard Dawkins and Lord Owen. The shoulders you rub against in the quality press, eh.
