Paddy Ashdown on Bosnia, Iraq & the LibDems
Earlier today I interviewed former LibDem leader Paddy Ashdown. The bulk of the 50 minute long interview concerned his career since he left Parliament, but in this ten minute long clip he talks about LibDem politics, the attempt by himself and Tony Blair to realign the left of British (he blames Gordon Brown for its failure) and the challenge now facing Ming Campbell. He says he believes Gordon Brown's attempts to build a government of all the talents were "genuine".
If you enjoy the clip, click HERE to watch the whole interview, in which we cover Bosnia, Iraq and his new book SWORDS AND PLOUGHSHARES.
