Thank you

Thank you!

Things I didn’t expect to hear during a general election campaign included Jason Donovan calling Ed Davey ‘sexy’ live on TV.

As YouGov’s polling found, “Looking at favourability figures, the results show that Davey is the only party leader to have experienced a significant improvement in ratings since the beginning of the campaign.”

Their polling also shows that people are most likely to think we fought a positive campaign and that Ed and our campaign comes out ahead of all the others for people saying that they have a favourable view of it.

But while it was Ed’s campaign tour – and his moving telling of his personal story of a carer – that got the headlines, behind that was a massive movement, focused on our target seats, that reached voters in unprecedented numbers.

Our target seat campaigning was so good that one member reported being complimented on a target letter from their candidate… while out swimming in the sea!

We’ll know shortly if the exit poll is right, and how many of our campaigns have been a success.

A special thanks to those who have pulled off the special combination of both helping build up our strength in their own area and helping in the places where we can best win – and those who have also been fighting council by-elections today, overshadowed by the general election.

And whatever the next few hours bring, my admiration and thanks for what our team of staff and volunteers has put together in just a few weeks, will remain huge.
