Really interesting episode and an interesting group too. The cohort who went into the Community Democrats is interesting, but did any go to FG?

Not that I know of. The CDI were allied with the European Liberal groups, so in a way it was another attempt by many of the same people to get a Liberal Party going here again.

And then on to PDs or did that kind of end there? It’s fascinating having two parties that occupy some of that terrain (actually some would say the LP was there too) but nothing that is overtly Liberal as such.
