Policy Debate About Values with David Howarth
(Monday, January 28, 2013)

Meeting type:Policy discussion
Date:Monday, January 28, 2013
Time:7.30pm - 9.30pm
Description:

Uniquely among the main UK political parties, the Liberal Democrats' founding constitution provides a clear vision of the kind of society Liberal Democrats strive to build and safeguard. Or does it? 


Its first 41 words say: The Liberal Democrats exist to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society, in which we seek to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality and community, and in which no one shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity.


After the poetry, come 752 words of prose that few people ever read, let alone quote. Together, these 793 words constitute the preamble to the Constitution. See http://www.libdems.org.uk/constitution.aspx 


Is it time to stick with the poetry and dump the prose, stick with both, or modify them for a clearer sense of direction in the 21st century?


Come and Debate with 


DAVID HOWARTH, CAMBRIDGE STUDENT LIBERAL DEMOCRATS, CAMBRIDGE LIBERAL YOUTH & CAMBRIDGE LIBERAL DEMOCRATS
