    Believe it or not, I am really pleased that there are enough committed, enthusiastic souls, who are about to get stuck into ‘campaigning’ again. There is something uplifting about conviction. For many, as I have said before, it’s not the prospect of winning that drives them on, when you really drill down, it’s being involved in something they clearly believe in.

    Where the Lib Dems, and any other third/fourth/fifth party, parts company with the other two is that they never seem to want to figure out what to do if they actually do come out on top. Now I know that, like the lottery that advertises on telly, you have to be “in it to win it”, so leafleting and door knocking has to play a vital part. Unfortunately, starting a couple of months before Election Day is a bit late, unless you happen to be in a strong Lib Dem area – a luxury that was denied to me throughout my active political career.

    If you look at what both Labour and around here what the Tories do it is to have a plan about what they intend to do when they win control. They rarely reveal much detail to the electorate; but, having worked with the latter in a County Council administration between 2013 and 2017, even to the extent of being invited to their caucus meetings, while never taking winning for granted, they, or at least those with a few more brain cells to be able to lead them, are always looking well past Election Day.
