Richmond Park – more pictures and a caption competition

Richmond Park is on course to be the biggest Lib Dem by-election campaign ever. Last weekend the Campaign Team put a call-out for 1000 volunteers, and very nearly reached that target. This weekend the team is planning to deliver an attractive magazine across the whole constituency, as well as make serious inroads into the canvassing. There are always admin jobs to do in the Kingston office as well.

People have been turning up from all over the country. Yesterday, in the space of a few minutes, I chatted with a couple of new members who had come down from Macclesfield for three days to help, as well as volunteers from Newcastle and Hull.


Mark Williams and John Pugh out on the streets of Richmond.


These volunteers have just arrived this morning from Glasgow!


Team London 2016 reunited.


In a garage not far away.


Back in the office, the promised food offerings are going upmarket …


… which may have attracted our persistent visitor in the Kingston office.


Politics is powered by elastic bands.


Meanwhile down in Southampton they are on the phone. Just don’t ask about the duck.

And finally …. the caption competition.


If you feel inspired to join us just turn up at either of the two HQs between 9am and 9pm, any day.

    I am pleased that the Moderator has accepted that, in this instance, “F**l” is a character, not an epithet.

    @ Matt ( Bristol).
    I really enjoy your contributions. They really make me think.

    I found myself agreeing with something that you raised in a different post that I would never have thought that I would agree with.

    Thanks Jayne — I suspect I have too many opinions…
