I’m indebted to Southport Cllr. Iain Brodie Browne for the lead to this posting and what a breath of fresh air Norman Lamb is on this knotty subject.

I’ve commented before on how much I admire Norman’s thinking (with the rather glaring exception of Brexit of course) and as usual he hits the right notes, which makes me even more befuddled about how he lost his way over Brexit I might add.

Go on have a read, see what we radical Social Liberals actually believe in……

Employee Ownership – This needs Liberally promoting yet again

This cause together with the promotion of cooperatives and mutuals is what made he realise I was a Liberal back in 1979 when I was wondering as a young lad where my true political home was.

The us and them approach to work by both the Tories and Labour seemed so negative to me and it still does now. And having spent 42 years years as an active trade unionist in the public sector (22 of those as a Branch Secretary) I have not seen a more positive way to re-balance our workplaces, our economy and our society.

So thanks to Iain for running this up the Liberal flagpole once again because its time is now and it will always be so.
