Whew, the Large Hadron Collider has recreated the conditions of the big bang – only much smaller. Well its a start. I did not notice the light flickering or feel the ground shake so we must presume as the experiments continue the world will not disappear into its own fundamental firmament.
Apparently our international band of mad scientists hope to prove the existence of a whole new state of matter known as the Quark Gluon Plasma. But what to do with the stuff? Well, The Telegraph breathlessly tell us this discovery could lead in turn to the uncovering of one of the fundamental forces that bind everything together. Out of self interest and personal political bigotry I hope the first available tin of Gluon Plasma is picked up by Dave and Nick. Maybe they could use it in Oldham and Saddleworth.
The return of Labour from its Twilight Zone into real space-time is not something I fancy.
I am a liberal. Well a libertarian.
I am a democrat. But not, note, a Democrat.
Its just that I am not a juxtaposition of the two. I am a Tory.
So why should I worry about the Liberal Democrats? Or offer them advice.
Well they are part of a Tory led Coalition, a Coalition their activists unanimously voted to join. So I do feel a small sense of self imposed responsibility. We also find journalists, typified by the absurd Mary Riddell who hardly deserves her platform in that parody of a once great newspaper – The Telegraph, seemingly intent on speculatively nit-picking the Coalition unto death.
All manner of horrors are being foretold upon the LibDem’s Conference. Apparently getting ones fingers smudged on the oily levers of power will be all too much for the delicate sensibilities of the party faithful.
Without a doubt the LibDem Conference will be interesting and who knows the electorate may (for the first time ever) be watching it like hawks.
What might they be looking for so intently? Well, just perhaps for signs of the Liberal Democrats growing up.
