Lib Dem MEP candidate Caroline Voaden on the liberal values Lib Dem MEPs would bring to Europe

In a few weeks’ time, we hope that Caroline Voaden will be a Liberal Democrat MEP for the South West. Her interview on Sky News today shows why she would do a fantastic job.

She talked about a vote for the Lib Dems being a vote to stop Brexit, why the Lib Dems have the advantage as the biggest, strongest pro Remain party in the UK, and the traditions of liberalism, internationalism and freedom that Lib Dem MEPs would bring to Brussels.


It was an excellent interview where she got all the points she needed to across and established why the Lib Dems have the advantage over other Remain parties.

  • “It was an excellent interview …”. Really? I’d say more “fair to middling” – and, if I was not an already committed Lib Dem, but a politically “homeless” pro-EU voter looking for positive reasons to vote Lib Dem (rather than Green or Change UK), I’d be left somewhat uninspired.

    It’s all very well mentioning concepts such as “liberalism” and “internationalism”, etc, but you then need to explain, with practical examples, how those values are relevant and can be applied in the context of the challenges and opportunities currently facing the EU … just a suggestion!

    David Raw. Based on your post the very senior office holder of a Federal Committee may well have committed a criminal offence of Unlawfully Obtaining Personal Data under s. 170 of the Data Protection Act 2018 and LDV appear to be in breach of it’s obligations under the GDPR, in particular Article 5.1.f “processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data, including protection against unauthorised or unlawful processing….”
    If that were to happen to me I would have no hesitation in reporting the matter to the Information Commissioners Office.

    Overall a good interview, Caroline made strong reasons for voting LD in the Euro Elections, one fact that might have strengthened our bid , would be that we will be joining a strong block of liberals from other European member states.

    @David Raw “the email address of contributors to LDV”
    This is very worrying.
    I believe that it is only if, when you submit a message, your email address is in the “website” box. This turns your name into a hyperlink to the web page (bold text, different colour, clicking it would take you to that web page).
    Some time ago my browser started putting my email address into that box automatically and I now have to remember to delete it every time. The link only shows the bit of the address after “@”, but I’ve just checked,and can confirm that the full email address can be found and everybody who posts on this site should ensure that they don’t accidentally leave their email address in the “Website” box.

  • @ Peter Watson Thank you, Peter. It’s disappointing that in a party which makes individual privacy and data protection one of its major principles, there has been no response either publicly or privately from the editorial board of LDV.

    They need to respond.
