A glimpse into what the future could hold for the Liberal Democrats

On Friday night I headed over to Richmond to speak at the massive meeting to kick off the campaigns for Sarah Olney and Munira Wilson:

In many ways, the event epitomised what the future for the Liberal Democrats could be like.

A diverse set of candidates in winnable seats.

A huge turnout of people who have recently joined the party, not campaigned before but are being mobilised in part by the new party pilot project I covered in Lib Dem Newswire.

And a canny bit of fundraising with not only the obligatory bucket but also an iZettle card reader which meant that for every Β£1 in cash donation in the bucket nearly another Β£3.50 was taken in card donations.

(Plus I got to tell the story about the Prue Bray board game.)

If you sign up for my blog posts digest you’ll get a handy one-a-day email with links to all the latest posts. You can also sign up for a range of other lists, including Liberal Democrat Newswire – a monthly newsletter about the party. Just pick the options you’d like on the sign-up form.

  1. Liberal Democrats are ON FIRE! We’re going to WIN this GE (we’re not aiming for Second Place)
    In my constituency (a very close Tory/Lib-Dem seat) our party workers have been out for over a month and already the opinion polls have put us marginally ahead of the Tory incumbent, and as soon as the election date had been announced we had a phone session organised to call past active supporters to come in again to leaflet, canvass, Phone, or even just to donate!
    Our orange garden-boards are already appearing all over town (living in a first-floor flat on a corner property I have two in my windows). We mean BUSINESS !

  2. I live in Tiverton and Honiton we beaf the Conservatives and Labour in the European elections and have a Street stall approx 1 a month all year round
