Any ideas on what this is?
Almost but not quite Nimbus Roman No 9 http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/urw/nimbus-roman-no-9/nimbus-roman-no-9-2842/ http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/urw/nimbus-roman-no-9/ Tail of a flips up.
Also pretty similar, with the same a tail flip problem CG Times http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/mti/cg-times/ and
Timeless EF Light http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/ef/timeless/
as well as several more similars with the a flip tail.
Either this is an edited logotype [Liberal Party?] or there is another font. If there is I assume someone will post the match for you.
My guess is that this is a Times 'clone' (almost). In other words, someone made a Times-like serif font, maybe mixing letters from some other serif. The 'a' isn't the only problem. The L has an odd thick bracket on the right of the stem, and the i is very close to its dot. These could be earmarks of tinkering with Times to make something slightly different, to avoid accusations of copying the font.
