New LDV members survey now live: what you think of key Lib Dem issues and the Coalition Government

The new LDV members’ survey is now live. So if you are one of the 1,000+ registered members of the Liberal Democrat Voice forum – and any paid-up party member is welcome to join – then you now have the opportunity to make your views known.

Questions we are asking your opinion on include:

  • your views on nuclear power;
  • whether the Lib Dems should make any electoral arrangement with the Conservatives;
  • your views on the Alternative Vote;
  • is the media giving the Lib Dems a fair hearing;
  • what you think are the biggest immediate threats to the Lib Dems;
  • whether you think the Lib Dems and Nick Clegg are on the right/wrong track;
  • how you rate the performance of leading Lib Dems and our government ministers;
  • your view on the Lib Dems involvement in the Coalition Government, and its record to date; and
  • what impact you think the coalition will have on the party’s electoral fortunes.

It should take no longer than 5-10 minutes to fill in. All registered members of the Forum will today be e-mailed with a unique link to take you to the survey. It takes a few hours to email these out, so please bear with the system. If you haven’t received the email by the end of today, or if you are signing up to the Forum now, please drop Ryan Cullen a line at [email protected]

We’ll publish the results in a few days’ time. You can access the results from our previous LDV members surveys by clicking here.

  • I am a labour supporter, but I ask you this question in all good faith.

    Do you and your party really understand what you are doing regarding the tory policies on the NHS? It seems to me that we are seeing the end of the NHS. I was not happy with what New Labour was doing, but I am appauled that you are letting the tories do what they have wanted to do for decades.

    Lansley has said he He will privatise ALL NHS hospitals . Well, not in so many words. He of couse calls them
    “social enterprises”, but these are private businesses: public assets and public employees will be transferred to private businesses. Lansley’s plans will create 250 separate businesses which means that the NHS will no longer exist as a single organisation.

    The White Paper says that the private sector (other than the privatised NHS hospitals) will provide more care, but has NOT said how they will be paid. Private providers are unhappy because they are FAR more expensive than the NHS. The only solution is to introduce co-pay, where patients will have to contribute towards part of their treatment out of their pocket. This will inevitably lead to health insurance, which is Nick Clegg’s preferred option.

    How many people who voted for you thought they were voting for the destruction of the NHS? Not many I would think.

    @ Sally – it’s a real shame that so many people voted Tory then it’s it. Are you appalled with them too?

  • Grammar Police 24th Aug '10 - 4:39pm

    Er, “Isn’t it?”

    I am not quite sure what to make of that comment. As far as I know the tory party did not say they were going to sell off the NHS before the last election. Just like they said they would not raise VAT. But I would expect nothing from the tories becasue I know they hate the NHS.

    But however many voted for them they did not get a majority. They are only in power thanks to you. Is it now Lib Dems policy to destroy the NHS?

    Yes, if we support Tory policy on the NHS then we support its destruction. If things go on as they are, in about a year or two there`ll still be something called the NHS only no-one working in it will be working for the public. Health workers will work for private providers, working hard to make money for them, to make dividends for shareholders, to make fat fudgin salaries and fat fudgin bonuses. That’s not he kind of NHS I want to see in this country.
