    Is it really called Lib Dem Remain?
    That seems a very poor choice. “Remain” is a fairly negative and passive sounding word compared to “In”, and the title just makes me think of the remains of the Lib Dems.

  • Caron Lindsay Caron Lindsay 10th Feb '16 - 1:14pm

    No, it’s actually called Liberal Democrats In

  • Antony Hook Antony Hook 10th Feb '16 - 1:31pm

    Definitely IN. Remain is not the best word but is sadly the one that will be on the ballot.

  • Peter Watson 10th Feb '16 - 1:41pm

    Phew, that’s a relief!
    I think the “IN” campaign needs a positive campaign which emphasises the benefits of EU membership, and should hold in reserve (a weapon of last resort?) the more negative campaigning based on fear of the unknown, being out and excluded, etc.

    At least remain has In in it:-)

  • Doesn’t ‘Liberal Democrats In…’ look like a tie-breaker crying out to be completed in fifteen words or less?

    The Lib Dem launch today was very positive and used the slogan “In Together”. I think this is pretty good but we must use the term “remain” or “remain in” frequently in our leaflets and statements. There is no use saying it sounds negative and passive. This may well be so and no doubt we would have preferred a different wording on the ballot paper. However it is the term selected by the Electoral Commission and it is what the voter will see on the paper. It is therefore essential for us to familiarise people with it.
