Introducing CentreForum’s ‘Liberal of the Week’ awards

by Stephen Tall on June 10, 2012

This week marks the start of a new feature I’ll be running in association with the CentreForum think-tank: Liberal of the Week.

The aim is simple enough: to showcase public figures who help promote liberal ideas. How are we defining liberal? Well, as you might imagine we’re interested in folk who advance the four tenets of liberalism described by David Laws in his introduction to The Orange Book: economic, personal, political and social liberalism.

We will be highlighting individuals regardless of their party affiliation, and indeed from beyond Westminster: if they stick up for liberalism then they’re in contention.

Nominations are welcome, of course, via email or Twitter. And if you want to find out which liberal choice has been crowned this week, check out the CentreForum blog in a few days’ time…
