Happy Birthday to us - sort of

Today is the 19th anniversary of the election of Paddy Ashdown as the first leader of what was then called the Social and Liberal Democrat party.

19 years? It seems a long time since we were changing the name of the party, seemingly, every few months. ...And a very long time since when, at the 1989 European elections, we got 4% of the vote and came fourth behind the Greens.

But I think we can look back with pride on solid progress throughout those years.
