"Democracy itself is endangered by the huge disparities of wealth and opportunity which exist within today's Britain, which must be addressed by creative action and by supporting those communities that most need it - increased public spending is only part of the solution. Until we have established a Britain in which equality of opportunity, health and education truly exists, and in which we all live in a healthy, clean environment, we cannot say that we live in a democratic nation." "Politics needs to rediscover its sense of idealism and purpose. Politicians can all too easily become entirely involved with the need to gain and retain power, and lose sight of the goals which originally drove them: the result is that the public becomes yet more alienated. The present government's desire for control can be seen in its unprecedented attacks on individual liberty, and if record levels of disaffection are to be avoided the promotion of freedom must be a high priority. We need to build a genuinely inclusive democracy in which the creativity and drive of individuals are celebrated, and nurture a culture of mutual responsibility, where people see their own actions at a local and community level as vital as the actions of central government." "Charles Kennedy shows that government must be both inventive and sensitive in its response to the deep problems of our society: prepared both to act where necessary and to be brave enough to withdraw wherever this will be most effective."--BOOK JACKET

A history of the Liberal Party in the twentieth century by David Dutton( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most existing accounts of the British Liberal Party are written within the context of the party's decline. The passage of the Twentieth century, however, enables a fresh view to be taken, which recognizes that the party has now been strengthening its position for more than forty years and has once again become a major player in British politics. This survey of British Liberalism from the era of Campbell-Bannerman to that of Charles Kennedy reviews existing literature while offering its own distinctive perspective
