Shame it's more of a "what might of been" rather than a "to come" as nearly all the authors are now gone from parliament
However the main point is that the book itself is thoroughly worth reading due to its consistent challenging of dogma, and use of innovative solutions to long standing and burgeoning problems, such as pensions, public services and the environment. The only piece I personally viewed with much scepticism was David Laws' essay on the health service. However whilst I disagree with his overall argument, he still makes compelling points and raises issues that should certainly be thought about.
If you are a Communist, you probably won't like this book. But if you are interested in reading about interesting approaches to some of the main questions of modern British politics, that are still relevent today despite the time passed since this book was published, it is certainly worth opening this book with an open mind, regardless of your political affiliation or persuasion.
Shameful book, but very enlightening for those who care about the NHS - never vote Tory, never vote Lib Dem, and think twice when voting Labour.
I dusted the book off my shelf and had a quick glance again to remind myself how much of this book resonated with the past 5 years. Not much, really. What did the LibDems achieve?
I understand the LibDems would be punished this election. But today's result is still more shocking than most people expected, Paddy Ashdown included.
