Presidential candidates respond to Rock the Boat

rocktheboatReaders may not all be familiar with ‘Rock the Boat – Lib Dems against sexual harassment’ given our semi-unofficial status within the party. We are not a formal association or SAO and we are mostly organised through networking and a private facebook group.

Launched in early 2013 in response to the first Channel 4 allegations about Lord Rennard’s behaviour, the group was a response from grassroots members to a fervent desire that the issues raised be thoroughly addressed in the party.

Presidential Candidates’ Emails to party members

Libby - Some rghts reserved by David SpenderLast night, emails from all 3 candidates for party president were sent to party members.

Sal Brinton to stand for party President

Liberal Democrat badge - Some rights reserved by Paul Walter, Newbury, UKThe Liberal Democrats have had a really tough four years since the formation of the coalition. Even though we suspected it would be tough, being in Government has taken its toll. Too many councillors who have worked hard, campaigned hard, and faithfully served their communities well, have lost their seats. They embody Liberal Democrat principles in action all over the country, so we must rebuild our local government base as a priority.

    An interesting interview with Tim Farron on Andrew Marr, in which Tim says that he is actually a bit of a Eurosceptic.
