What have Liberal Democrats today to learn from Liberal heroes of the past? Who contributed most to the development of the party and of Liberalism? What common themes bind them together?
Two speakers offered their choices: Bill Rodgers (Lord Rodgers of Quarry Bank), one of the SDPs “Gang of Four” and leader of the Liberal Democrat peers; and Graham Watson MEP, former aide to David Steel and the one of the Liberal Democrats first two Euro-MPs. Chair: Graham Tope (Lord Tope of Cheam).
The meeting marked the launch of the Liberal Democrat History Group’s major publication, the Dictionary of Liberal Biography.
