...the language of farm, city and love

Now is a great time for a leadership candidate launch a strong and substantive agricultural policy. This should serve as a good reminder for Liberals. The solution that farmers are seeking is, at simplest, a big government solution. Conservatives and farmers do not make natural bedfellows to the extent that is sometimes imagined. It's not a stretch, then, to expect a major Liberal revival in the country. We don't have to sell out our social liberalism - merely take our social justice agenda past city limits. So let's see it.

Thats actually a very good point. I think we should dispell the myth that people in rural areas are socially conservative and thus prone to vote Tory.

Excellent "Nature of Things" last night about Cuba's organic farming strategy. Did anyone else see this, or am I the only one up at two in the morning watching documentaries about Communist argiculture?
