It was very encouraging to watch Martin Tod, LD candidate for Winchester, on the BBC's Politics Show today proving himself to be significantly better briefed than his Conservative or Labour opponents when debating with young people. What most impressed me during the discussion was that Martin repeated the simple message that we will reduce taxes for all people on average incomes, including young people, which crucially will give them more control over their own finances rather than having to rely on state handouts.

He also made the excellent point that a fair voting system would be a major assault on the sleaze which has engulfed Parliament since the worst examples of abuse of the expenses system have come from MPs in the safest seats, where they are most confident that they can remain whatever their performance for residents.
