The AEC have just announced that the LDP (Australia’s only registered libertarian party) has won its case to return to our original name. Before the 2007 election, the party was forced to change its name to “Liberty & Democracy Party” in the face of Liberal Party legislation. But thankfully sanity has returned… and the original name has been approved.
This is also a good time to mention that I will be heading down to Sydney in January 2008 to do some work for the Centre for Independent Studies (CIS). As the CIS likes to keep at arms-length from political parties, that means I’ll have to step away from the LDP.
It also means I’m looking for a place to stay in Sydney for a few months… so if you know of anywhere, please contact me.
