The New Liberal Manifesto

The New Liberal Manifesto is an informal initiative by a group of Liberal Democrats led by Chris Bowers.

It restates the key features of liberalism and suggests how liberalism can best be put into effect in the modern world.

We hope that it will enable Liberal Democrats to express more clearly what we stand for, and apply those principles to a programme for government that will have to grapple with climate change, the increasing power of commerce in a data driven world, and the various threats posed to democracy everywhere, but particularly in this country.
