Jo Swinson’s tour of Brecon and Radnorshire’s by-election HQ

Jo Swinson headed to Brecon again today to help Jane Dodds campaign.

Here’s her whistle stop tour of the busy looking by-election HQ. As you would expect, there are lots of leaflets and cake.

And someone on his very first Lib Dem by-election campaign. And that someone looks incredibly comfortable and on message.

The point, really, is to persuade people to go.
I remember how much it meant to us in Dunfermline in the middle of Winter back in 2006 when what seemed like the entire party turned up to put in a shift or several. We were able to deliver that winning campaign because we had the help.
Jane Dodds is an incredibly talented and experienced MP. We need someone with her background on our benches. I’m going there a week on Thursday for 3 days because I want to see her in the House of Commons.

I should add that other leadership candidates can also be found in Brecon because this site is scrupulously neutral. Ed’s going there tomorrow and we’ll be reporting on his visit too.

    I have already spent 2.5 days there and will spend the last 3 days of the campaign there as well with my wife Ruth.
    It really is important to get Jane elected, so YOU should drop everything else and go to B&R as soon as you can and for as long as you can. In the old leaflet parlance, ‘Please don’t rely on someone else the help Jane Dodds win, they may be relying on you”.

  • I have arranged to spend the final weekend there.

    The article should say that Jane is an experienced candidate – she isn’t an experienced MP, yet!

    Best wishes to Jane from an ex-Tory – just resigned because BoJo unfit for public office – who voted remain in 2016 on grounds: Brexit (a) danger to UK as union; (b) economic risk, and (c) premature as possible to seek a remodelling of EU to avoid UK being part of a federal state.

    Unfortunately, it now looks as if the move to federalism is accelerating under von der Leyen and Michel. I’m contemplating joining the LibDems but wonder what their policy is with regard to staying in/re-entering EU in those circumstances. I wouldn’t want the UK to be part of a federal state; I prefer a Europe des patries. A two-tier Europe would be my preference.
