  • Description

    MR. JO GRIMOND, THE LIBERAL PARTY LEADER, IS SPENDING THE WEEKEND CAMPAIGNING IN HIS CONSTITUENCY OF THE ORKNEY ISLANDS OFF THE COAST OF SCOTLAND. HE ADDRESSED MEETINGS AND MET LOCAL RESIDENTS IN FOUR DIFFERENT ISLANDS ON SATURDAY, TRAVELLING IN A 45-FOOT MOTOR BOAT.

    ONE OF THE MAIN POINTS MADE IN HIS SPEECHES DURING THE DAY WAS AN ATTACK ON SLOGANS AND PROMISED MADE BY THE OTHER MAIN POLITICAL PARTIES DURING THE ELECTION CAMPAIGN.

    WHAT BRITISH POLITICS NEEDED, HE SAID, WERE MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT WHO HAD SOME POLITICAL CONVICTION - SOME DEDICATION TO AN IDEAL. HE PROMISED THAT THE LIBERAL PARTY WOULD SHOW PEOPLE THAT VOTING WAS SOMETHING MORE THAN "SURRENDER TO THE SLICKEST ADVERTISING."
