I was asking a simple question because I was comparing to the other parties in the same block in the European Parliament, that I know better, and I was doing that in an European perspective, not an American one.
Half of the right wing parties in France are to the left of the DLC. This does not mean they are good compared to what exists in France, same thing in Germany and in Spain.
So my question was to know where the two parties stands and luckily, BenP gave an excellent answer in his thread later.
I certainly disagree with Blair's foreign policy, but the political life in England would have to have become really different for a liberal populist Democrat to prefer the Liberal Democrats to the Labour Party (can somebody from England tell us more on that).
Wait a minute. Why do you hold responsible those Senators that did not vote for the bill in 2001 and 2004.
Byrd is not a liberal, neither is Reid. Their votes should have been expected. Neither of the 11 Senators voting against this bill the two last times should be held responsible for the fact that some prefer their contributions to the public good.
