    By John Pugh in Liberal Democrat Voice

    Christmas looks a little more cheerful for the Lib Dems after a string of November council by-election results but so far as national opinion polls go we are bumping along the bottom.

    Given such data, it would be unsafe to draw the conclusion that are resolute anti-Brexit stance is paying dividends. It may well do so when some turn of events demonstrates to the vast swathes of voters that Brexit was a catastrophic economic and political mistake, but no-one just now is holding their breath. There may well come that Iraq moment when the party's wisdom is demonstrably vindicated but until then there is the danger that all our limited national political bandwith is consumed by the Brexit issue and we become as narrowly defined in the electorate's mind as UKIP.

    You can join the Liberal Democrats quickly, easily and safely online here.

    There are lots of reasons to join the Lib Dems. Some people join because they want to stand up for our values, of openness, tolerance and unity. Some because they want to help us win elections. Others so they can stand for election and stand up for their community.

    By The Voice in Liberal Democrat Voice

    On Wednesday this week, Layla Moran held a debate in Westminster Hall to highlight the issue of period poverty and the need to provide sanitary protection for those most vulnerable. It was an interesting debate, but there's no good the minister making sympathetic noises and everybody agreeing with each other if the Government doesn't do something about it. Layla pointed this out.

    The former deputy PM and the Nobel prize winner discuss the EU, business and Trump

    Richard Thaler was awarded the Nobel prize for economics in October, for work that has "built a bridge between the economic and psychological analyses of individual decision-making". While traditional economics assumes that people are rational actors, Thaler explores the consequences of irrationality, bias and error, and proposes ways that governments, through mechanisms as simple as changing the phrasing on a form, can encourage, or "nudge", smarter decision-making. Nudge, the 2008 bestseller he wrote with Cass Sunstein, introduced the influential concept of "choice architecture", while his 2015 book Misbehaving was a personal history of behavioural economics. As the author Michael Lewis put it, he's "the economist who realised how crazy we are".

    Article: Dec 3, 2017

    Alter welcomes the report https://institute.global/insight/renewing-centre/home-truths-progressive-vision-housing-policy-21st-century published by the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change.

    The executive summary is reproduced below:

    A housing crisis is sweeping through cities from Sydney to London to San Francisco. Following a short slump in 2008, house prices across the OECD have soared, contributing to a decline in living standards and a rise in wealth inequality. Today, housing is the source of economic anxiety, social resentment, and political frustration.

    kirsten There was a recent article on Lib Dem Voice by Lord MacDonald on the review that is taking place on the Party's disciplinary procedure. I would like to encourage you to take part if you have not already done so - I confess I only just got around to filling it in myself yesterday!

    Regarding complaints, I have experienced elements of both ends of this process - having something done to me which I made a complaint about; and sitting on a disciplinary panel to decide whether charges against a party member were held or not.
