 Liberal Party (UK) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Liberal Party was one of the two major British political parties from the early 19th century until the 1920s, and a third party of varying strength and importance up to 1988, when it merged with the Social Democratic Party (the SDP) to form a new party which would become known as the Liberal Democrats.
In 1841 the Liberals lost office to the Conservatives under Sir Robert Peel, but their period in opposition was short, because the Conservatives split over the repeal of the Corn Laws, a free trade issue, and a faction known as the Peelites (but not Peel himself, who died soon after), defected to the Liberal side.
By contrast most of the party's seats were won either due to the absence of a candidate from one of the other parties or in rural areas on the "Celtic fringe", where local evidence suggests that economic ideas were at best peripheral to the electorate's concerns.

 Liberal Party - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Liberal Party is the name of dozens of political parties around the world.
It usually designates a party that is ideologically liberal, meaning that they advocate individual rights and civil liberties, and sometimes left wing, meaning that they are egalitarian and believe in the redistribution of wealth from rich to poor.
However, there are also many Liberal Parties which subscribe to classical liberalism and therefore support a mostly unregulated free market, or who are actually more conservative in nature than their opponents, or whose views are right wing, libertarian, or difficult to categorise.

Problems for the Liberals started early in the campaign, and revolve mostly around the aides to current Prime Minister Paul Martin, who is trying to overcome the stain of the Sponsorship Programme corruption within his party.
