    I’m interested by the promise to defend civil liberties. But will you? What liberties will the party defend?

    A man in Shetland has just been sentenced to 6 months in prison for growing cannabis for his own medical purposes Why are the lib dems in Shetland not publicly defending his right to do this and condemning the unjust sentence?

    I’d like to see free speech online protected from the regressives on the illiberal political left, will the lib dems defend free speech online? Labour won’t, labour are a large part of the problem.

    My point is if you’re going to claim to be defending my rights and freedoms then you have to say which ones you’re defending, and have real grass routes campaigning on those issues to prove you mean it. If I see those then I will vote lib dem, if I dont I won’t.

    It does seem from reports that postal voting fraud is not too difficult, so I would like to see the current policy challenged.

    I do hope it’s not Postal Vote Polling Day! We’re a week a way at least in our area. There’s enough confusion with the idiocy of starting the Referendum Campaign today – 9 weeks before the day – should on start of 6 May, more than enough time and more than enough to bore everyone but poiliticos stiff!

    On postal voting am I alone in thinking it has become far too widespread without any justification? It invites corruption and flies in the face of the electoral system as originally conceived – open at all stages to public gaze except in the polling booth. Postal voting undermines community, civic duty and the public realm.
