On Saturday Dora,Chris and I helped out at a Fairtrade Stall at Butterfly walk in Camberwell, giving out samples of chocolate tea and coffee and asking people to sign our petition to make Southwark a Fairtrade Borough.
There was a very positive response and it is nice to do something non-party political for once!
It was interesting to see Ming Campbell set out his negotiating position for a possible coalition with Labour in the event of a hung parliament showing once again the complete absence of any political principle within the Lib Dems. They are an unholy alliance of right and left wingers fighting for control, the right wingers appear to be in the ascendency, and are happy to make a deal with any side that will give them power, Labour on Scotland and Wales, Tories in Southwark etc!
They accept the inevitable that they will never win a General Election in this country and therefore their whole position is based on horsetrading, apparently even a comittment to PR is not a "dealmaker or dealbreaker"!
When pressed on taking the UK into the Euro, another "dealbreaker". Davey was squirming like a worm on a hook so it looks like that has gone as well!!
