David Alton

Most of the things which matter the most can be summed up in pithy straight-forward words such as justice, liberty, duty, freedom,mercy, conscience, dignity, family, faith, fairness  life itself. These are the things which make for the common good and give people hope.
Thank you for taking the time to visit this website. It was originally created by volunteers who wanted to provide easier access to some of the speeches I have made and to some of the articles and books which I have written.  Since then the site has been visited by over quarter of a million people from five continents with lots of positive and encouraging feedback.
Links on the site will take you to the contributions I made in the House of Commons between 1979 and 1997 and in the House of Lords from 1997 until now. There are links to countries and issues and about which I have taken a particular interest – such as poverty, gendercide, human cloning, and human trafficking.  There are human rights reports on situations witnessed first-hand in countries like Sudan and Darfur, Congo, North Korea and Burma.  There are power point presentations and audios of talks. There are also biographical details and some links to organisations which whom I work or which champion some of the causes featured on this site.
Thank you for joining the visitors – I hope that you find what you were looking for.
Doing politics as if people mattered.

    May I simply just say what a relirf to find an individual who actually knows what they are
    discussing online. You certainly know how to bring an issue to light and make it important.

    More and more people really need to check this out and understand this side of the story.
    I can’t believe you are not more popular because you most certainly have the gift.

    I saw you on EWTN’s The World Over Live with Raymond Arroyo. You appeared with Michael Coren discussing religious persecution in a way that brought it home. Truth, intelligence, insight and conviction were evident. At 73 and wishing to retire from law in the US, I pray for much the same in my life. God bless you and all who see and act accordingly. . . .

    I’ve been browsing online more than three hours lately, but I never discovered any interesting article like yours.
    It’s beautiful worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers
    made good content material as you probably did, the net can be much more helpful than ever before.

    I was born and raised in , Wavetree, Lpool and Lord Alton was our MP. I have never had the privilege to meet him, but have admired the mans integrity over the years . It’s not just simply a word to him, it’s a principal that he truly believes in.
    I really enjoy reading his comments on here and have particular in interest in Asia as I have lived and worked in Central Asia for last 25 years.

    I’m impressed, I ust say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and interesting, andd without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.

    The issue is something that not enoughh people are speaking intelligently about.

    I’m very happy that I came across this in my hunt for something concerning this.

    am very interested in reading these details. Many thanks, Kate
