Links of the day

In case you’ve missed it, OurKingdom has Henry Porter’s speech at last week’s Lib Dem Conference Rally.

Mark Pack has some sage, if counter intuitive advice to bloggers (especially grumpy ones): in short if you’re in a hole, keep digging.

Richard Kemp is concerned about how the party’s policy making process is increasingly being subverted and ignoring the views of local government.

Oh, and can I just say I’m starting to like the pattern that is forming opinion poll-wise. More please.

You’ve probably already read Danny Alexander’s attempt to clarify Nick Clegg’s position on tax cuts and Paul Holmes’ riposte to it. For the record I’m nothing like as sceptical as Paul Holmes is about tax cuts. I only ask for two things – that we are prudent and that we are clear about what we’re doing. For possibly the first time in my life that puts me on the left of a debate, which is at least novel.

Joshua Vincent has written a factinating comment on yesterday’s links post about Land Value Taxation in Namibia.

Alexandra Runswick reports from yet another seminar about the Government’s Statement of Values initiative.

Matt Damon asks some pertinent questions about Sarah Pailin (hat tip: James Schneider).

Finally, and also on YouTube, this video made me laugh out loud. I have to admit I’ve been following sxephil for a couple of weeks and he is starting to grow on me.

Geoffrey Payne asks if the Green Alliance will ever acknowledge anything the Lib Dems do.

Jo Christie-Smith gives her review of the new Lib Dem website design (broadly agree with her conclusions).

An interesting article by Guy Hassan about the state of UK think tanks.

Thoroughly Good Egg Mark Braund makes the case for Land Value Taxation in South Africa with a view to avoiding Zimbabwefication (which may or may not be a word I just made up but I trust the meaning of it is clear?)
