Lib Dems will rattle the cage of British politics
In his leader’s speech Menzies Campbell has attacked the cosy consensus between Labour and the Conservatives and committed the Liberal Democrats to rattling the cage of British politics:
Are the Lib Dems the new pragmatic `conservatives`
It is clear that there was a big shift in thinking in 1979. People were willing to vote for someone saying unsayable things to make a change. In 97 it was the same. There are I believe two shifts going on in politics.
