Letter: Labour on the fringes

Sir: Professor Tomlinson may care to consider the preamble to the federal constitution which appears on Liberal Democrat Party cards.

The Liberal Democrats exist to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society in which we seek to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality and community and in which no-one shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity.

I hope he finds these principles more acceptable than the Labour party sense of moral values which he has found wanting.
