You know what? I'm a trade unionist too. Deal with it.
Also my thoughts exactly: though of course in Britain "Liberal" refers to the old Liberal party, now the Liberal Democrats, the heartily-despised junior partner in the ConDem coalition government. So while in US terms I consider "Liberal" a badge of honour, I would find the term more alarming here. Though in the days before mergers and coalitions I regularly voted Liberal as a student - and I had plenty of opportunities to do so, as in the days of snap elections my first year of enfranchisement contained two general elections. Since the coalition sellout, though, when the LibDems moved from the upper to the lower half of the poster, I have happily done whatever it takes to hasten the permanent demise of the Liberal Democrats. (In Scotland it's pretty much a done deal already.)
