Eastleigh by-election: your essential round-up of the latest campaign news (12 Feb)

Here’s a round-up of news from the past 24 hours in the Eastleigh by-election…

mike thornton eastleigh jon aylwinNick Clegg offered Lib Dem candidate Mike Thornton his full backing on a visit to Eastleigh on Monday. Here‘s the Guardian report:

“I am confident we will keep hold of this seat but not because I say so but because the people of Eastleigh are telling us that,” said Clegg. Focusing on the party’s local dominance – it is the only place in the country where every councillor at district and county level is a Liberal Democrat – he said voters would focus on its “record of action” and said the party had “to be quite clear where our differences lie”. … Speaking after meeting students at the local college, Clegg said: “Cutting council tax, promoting more apprenticeships, creating jobs, protecting green spaces – those are things that Liberal Democrats haven’t just talked about, they are things they have actually done and it’s a record of which we are tremendously proud.”

It’s not just Nick Clegg who’s been doing his Eastleigh stint, though. Pictured above (with thanks to Jon Aylwin) is North Devon MP Nick Harvey out canvassing with Mike and some of his supporters.

Want to join the hundreds of Lib Dems who are doing their bit to help get Mike elected as the next Lib Dem MP for Eastleigh on 28th February? Here’s a reminder of how YOU can make a difference:

  • Volunteer to help in Eastleigh itself

      "I’d get rid of the revoke Brexit position" Pretty sure that decision is now out of our hands anyway! I think we need to work...

      if the Lib Dem's were an advertising agency, you wouldn't trust your message to them would you! So many errors!

      I agree with much that David Evans has said. Why, oh why did the opposition parties allow themselves to be suckered into a General Election...

      Sorry but Swinson has to take responsibility. She should have reached out to Labour and tried to engineer a deal where we didn’t fight each...

      Shocking. Terrible decision to call the election, to revoke and so on. Need a major rethink.

      I voted Lib Dem in Southport via postal vote. We need an enquiry into the party's performance. I'd get rid of the revoke Brexit position...
