Apparently Tim Garton Ash does not know that there already is something called \”The Liberal Party\”. The rump of the old party, essentially the Manchester Liberals who could not bear to get into bed with the social democrats like Shirley Williams. And Polly.
Err, sorry for that image there, mind bleach is available over in the corner.
So, if the main political column in a major national newspaper can be based on such an ignorance, well, what value should we place on the rest of that paper\’s output?
