Biscuits in Brecon….

This weekend, Liberal Democrats have been flocking to help Jane Dodds win Brecon and Radnorshire for the Liberal Democrats.

This time next week, I’ll be there. I am so excited because I have never been out of Cardiff before and I’m so looking forward to seeing more of Wales.

Here are just some of the people who have been helping.

Cambridge PPC Rod Cantrill said:

Great to be back again in Brecon with two car loads of activists from Cambridge door knocking for Jane Dodds on the Brecon Ro(a)d trip!

Alex Cole-Hamilton’s wife Gill may well be annoyed that they decided a long time ago to go to Wales for their Summer holiday. Alex made his second trip today and found two more Lib Dem parliamentarians to play with:

And he revealed that he has some family history in the area.

Amid reports of copious supplies of cake, Lib Dem Friends of Biscuits hit back in style:

And Dominic Buxton gives us a glimpse of how gorgeous it is there:

I don’t see any canvassing going on here…

This lot are actually out doing some work though….

And a team from London take up poetry.

The West Midlands showed up too

We can’t have too many Janes in Parliament..

And it seems Jane Dodds’ campaign is very visible


Everyone is smiling and having fun as well as working hard. Going to a by-election gives you the chance to see the Lib Dem campaigning machine at its best and there’s a great feeling of camaraderie and of the party coming together to win.

If you can go at any point between now and August 1st, please do. Every leaflet delivered, every door knocked on, really matters.

    I had an afternoon in Brecon on Friday, helping get things ready for this weekend’s busy campaigning session. I don’t think it is in anyway a done deal that we will get Jane Dodds elected, and I would urge every supporter of liberal democracy both in and outside our party, to either go to Brecon & Radnorshire, help from home by hitting the phones, or sending a contribution to the campaign fund. Complacency is a bigger opponent that the Tory & Brexit parties. I hope to return before polling day on 1st August.

    I will send another chq.

  • I would back up Mick Scholes’ comments, spending Friday in Builth Wells our support is strong but so is the Tories.
    Please get down there, I hope to pay more visits between now and August 1st.
    I also helped in 1985, during that campaign the Daily Mirror published part of an opinion poll which looked good for Labour (the seat then being a 3 way marginal). David Penhaligon reputedly “back engineered” the Mirror’s poll revealing that we were in the lead!
