"Liberal Party" is the name of some like-named political parties in a number of countries:

  • The British Liberal Party was powerful from the 1860s to 1920, then declined. It evolved from the Whig Party. Most members merged with Social Democratic Party (SDP) to form the Liberal Democrats in 1988.

World-wide, although some "liberal" parties claim to be "pro-business" or "pro-small business" they invariably adopt policies that are anti-corporation, anti-large business and increase corporate taxation to provide more social welfare "benefits", typical of liberals in the U.S.
