How you can help elect more Liberal Democrat MPs

So far the Liberal Democrat campaign is going well. Our leaders are knocking it out of the park in the way they are communicating our values to the voters. Let’s just have another look at Ed’s highly personal Party Election Broadcast which shows how his experiences have shaped his values – and why our manifesto focuses so heavily on health, care and carers.

Last Friday our Deputy Leader Daisy Cooper made every word count as she represented the party in the BBC Election Debate.

Last night Alex Cole-Hamilton earned praise from the New Statesman for his performance in the BBC’s Scottish equivalent. They said:

Alex Cole Hamilton, the leader of the Scottish Liberal Democrats, quietly emerging as the most impressive performer in the latest Scottish leaders’ debate.

Here he is talking about our plans to improve mental health:

We shouldn’t get too excited about the polls, but who doesn’t love a poll that puts us on 15%, just 3 points behind the Conservatives and 2 points behind Reform? It is a sign, though, that people like what they are seeing of us.

So our leaders are doing great things on the airwaves. The best way we can complement their efforts is to do all we can to help the many seats where we have a chance of winning. Every member will have had many communications by now asking them to prioritise their efforts in a specific seat.

Our electoral system is terrible. It’s unfair and it generally does not give people the Parliament they ask for. This is why we need to concentrate our resources where we can win – and the most important resource we have is our people. So if you can, help out a key seat by going there, donating or taking part in maraphones.

There will always be something you can do, whatever your ability or energy level, from home as well as out on the doorsteps. Find out more here.

Election campaigns are great fun and it’s wonderful to be around so many like minded people. If we all pull our weight in our target seats, we will make the polls’ forecasts of significant gains a reality. In those seats they have spent four years laying strong foundations for this campaign, but in these last weeks, they need all of us to play our part in getting them over the line.

So if you want to see all our current MPs returned alongside amazing candidates like Victoria Collins, Bobby Dean, Zoe Franklin, Susan Murray, Liz Jarvis, Josh Babarinde, Paul Kohler, Monica Harding, Pippa Heyling, Danny Chambers, Max Wilkinson, Lisa Smart, Shaffaq Mohammed, David Chadwick and many others, do your bit to get them elected.

    “Every member will have had many communications by now asking them to prioritise their efforts in a specific seat.”
    No, I haven’t had any, let alone many.

    I liked what Daisy Cooper did about the D-Day/Rishi controversy. Reading from her Grandpa’s war diary was high risk because it is so easy to sound mawkish – but it really resonated.

  • Jenny – where do you live? Do you get party emails and hard copy mailings or have you opted out?
