The old Liberal Party was the other half of the two party system alongsie the Conservatives (Tories and Whigs), until the Labour Party was formed at the turn of the last century.

The LibDem Party as it currently stands, didn't exist during the Falklands War. It was the SDP (remember the Gang of Four?) / Liberal Alliance.
Thanks for the reminder. It's coming back now. SDP History (Wiki)

My commute to work in 1981 took me past one of the places where the SDP were holding one of their initial meetings with their leaders present, entrance fee an entirely affordable one year's membership to the party. To this day I think it would have been more educational to forget about work for that day and witness it first hand.
