#Libdemfightback isn’t just for newbies

I joined the Liberal Democrats as a Scottish Liberal Party member on merger and have held a membership ever since. Like many, I am keen to turn my grief at last Thursday’s results (and, being honest, the results of the last Scottish Parliament elections too) into determination that liberalism is too important to be allowed to die. But, unlike the much appreciated surge of new members, I can’t join a party I am already a member of.

So what can I do? I pay my party dues by monthly direct debit and phoned up party HQ to make a small monthly increase. I appreciate that many of us will have made donations of money, time, blood, sweat and tears over past months, but if a surge of us can make even a small monthly increase to what we pay the party, just think what a difference it could make over the next five years. I know it’s not the solution in itself to our challenges….but those challenges will be a whole lot easier to face if we have more resources to play with.

Could you do the same? If so, just click here.
