Rebekah, had you not worked out yet that Tony carries on doing ALDC-type work even in his sleep (whenever he gets any) much as you do, I am sure?

What PCs and all the other digital gubbins has done to all of us is to make many believe that the "old ways" of debating and communicating with each other and with electors are no longer really necessary.

In effect we have become disabled by technology - wheelchair users and people with every variety of physical disability overcome far greater obstacles than being constantly led by the hand (the main role that ALDC has always carried out as far as I can tell), and Tony should know by now that the "learn as you go" philosophy developed by Apple & Microsoft has permeated every aspect of human behaviour, including electioneering and being an effective representative.

SUCCESSFUL ELECTIONEERING may eventually become a subject on the National Curriculum if the NC survives, and the Ruling Class forgets its fear of education for the lower orders.

I think we have been somewhat absorbed by some of the other issues which have been very much to the fore, to say nothing of trying to get more Lib Dem MPs elected. This coming year see the Scottish parliament Elections and our Local Council Elections, so we have a massive amount of work to do.

I do know that, if I allowed it to, my Lib Dem work could become a full-time job (all unpaid of course). I don't have enough hours in the day to do everything I should do. So, whilst we may appear to be moribund in this group, we are definitely not, just very busy!

I am thankful that I joined ADLC as a Member - I have found it has been the most helpful information I receive in my email Inbox on a regular basis and the resources which are available to all ALDC members are excellent.

Is this whole group effectively moribund or is there stuff I can't find or see?

Posted first on PR or Nothing Comment Wall.

Two suggestions for stickers/badges which could do with attention from a Graphic Designer to be sent to Lib Dem Image & ALDC:

The football supporters' mantra - 'AV' IT

and the Lib Dem preferences: "ME for STV" or "STV for ME"

Or for really decrepit old wireless-educated fogeys such as me, the Wilfred and Mabel Pickles favourite: "'AV' A GO"

Hello to all, I have recently been approved to stand as a councillor in Worcester Park ward in the London Borough of Sutton. My dayjobs include running the 'print room' for Paul Burstow MP and co-team leader of the Sutton LibDems Phone Bank. I look forward to contuning the tradition of representing 'residents before politics' and Getting Things Done

The House of Commons Communities and Local Government Select Committee will carry out a inquiry into the Labour government's plan to create regional fire control centres - a project I oppose. Go to the link to my website to read what I have to say.

What concrete stuff will the Lib Dems put through in a 1st term of government

So far I know
1. Electoral system would be changed
2. £ 10 k a year personal allowance
3. Mansion tax

What other definites are there?
would the council tax be abolished?
Is there a pull out timeframe for Iraq?

If worried about journalists or Tory or Labour spies, with ACT being open to public. Is it not likely they will already are signed up as party members, and worked their way up the party membership? And already know the juicy bits
