Welcome to the latest in my little explainer video series, trying to demystify a little some of the things the Liberal Democrats get up to: how and why we do what we do.
Today’s video is about why standing in as many elections as possible – even those apparently unwinnable council by-elections – makes sense for the Liberal Democrats, for the voters and even for democracy.
I’ve concentrated on ‘why stand?’ in the context of ‘but it’s hard to find enough candidates’ and ‘but we won’t win’. There’s also the question of whether or not to stand in the context of deals with other parties. That’s for another day, though my general outlook on that is here.
