LDV wants to find out who our readers think merits the title Liberal Voice of the Year 2010, and we’ll be running a New Year poll to find the individual or group which has most inspired you in the last year. But, as is our traditional little twist, we want to look outside the Liberal Democrats – and find the greatest liberal who’s not a member of our party.
So, who would you pick? It could be a member of another political party, or one of the majority of Britons who belong to no party; or a group of people, or an organisation, which campaigns for liberal values. It could even be someone who isn’t British themselves, but has had a big impact on liberalism in this country in 2010. And what should qualify as “a liberal”? You decide …
Let us know your nominations in the comments – and feel free to start debating different candidates’ merits – and our poll will shortly be live for you to choose LDV’s Liberal Voice of the Year 2010.
Previous winners of the LDV Liberal Voice of the Year award:
2009: Peter Tatchell, international human rights campaigner.
2008: Campaigners on behalf of Jean Charles de Menezes (Justice4Jean.org) and Stockwell Shooting Inquest Jury.
