1, The Abortion debate

I'm genuinely pleased that for the first time ever we have a party policy on abortion. I wish I'd been more prepared to say so, but I hadn't planned to speak in the debate; one of the joys of being on FCC is that if a debate is running low on speakers you quite often get asked to put a card in, and this was one of those times. That speech was therefore scrawled hurriedly on the back of an official FCC debate planner. This might explain why it's a bit short and I'm shaking like a grain of rice on top of a washing machine.

2, The Mental Health debate

Here I am moving a separate vote to remove the words "to themselves or" from the phrase "prevent harm to themselves or to others". I'd like to thank John Stuart Mill and Harriet Taylor for providing over a third of my speech ;) Do please show this one to anyone who claims Lib Dems don't talk about fundamental principles any more.

3, An Intervention on the Immigration Motion.

Microphone cut me off with three words to go, but if you can lipread you can tell what they were. When I say at the beginning "I bet you're sick of the sight of me" that's because it was only the third item of the day, and I'd chaired the first and spoken in the second... I especially love the flattering preview image on this one.

ETA:Thanks to the lovely Zoe O'Connell for technical assistance in retrieving the videos, and to Jon Ball without whose laptop the videos wouldn't have happened in the first place.
