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 ยฃ1 in cash donation in the bucket nearly another ยฃ3.50 was taken in card donations.

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