Tweets and snapshots from the Campaign Trail

Our Liberal Democrat campaigners have been out and about knocking on doors. The selection of tweets that follow represents a tiny snapshot of the work going on across the country. The Liberal Democrats are bright, bold and determined in the run up to May 7th.

You don’t need astrology to tell you that there’s a highly motivated Liberal Democrat team behind Michael Mullaney’s campaign to oust the MP who wants Astrology to influence how we run the NHS.

In Hornsey and Wood Green, Lynne Featherstone led her team into action:

LGBT+ Lib Dems were out at Student Pride:

Adrian Sanders brightened up Torbay:

Heaven knows why Twitter put a content warning on this photo from Stephen Gilbert’s team – it just showed a lot of happy, determined Liberal Democrats.

  • The national polls in Sundays papers have the LibDems at 6% and 8%, basically where they have been for many months. During the week Scottish and London polls had them at 3% and 8% respectively. Those campaigners look like a nice bunch, but they are in for an up hill struggle and because of their leadership it’s one they can’t win.

    What counts as winning? 6-8% translates into 20-30 seats. Every seat we win is one less for the other parties. We were never going to win the General Election outright. Good for those who were out campaigning, I say!

    Malc, in the key seats we are doing a great deal better than our national poll rating and in every seat we will have some achievable target to meet.

  • Caron, I admire your optimism. However Electoral Calculus was published yesterday. This was very accurate in terms of our seat return at the last General Election when others were forecasting all sorts of advance. Yesterday it gave us 15 seats, Labour 301, Cons 265, SNP 46!!!!
    I can well recall 1970, just over 300 candidates, 7.5% of the vote and how many MPs, single figures? We had target seats then and had a rough time.

    The SNP are at, what, 2-3% in the polls, and seem quite chipper?

    It’s not your UK-wide percentage that counts, it’s where the votes are.

  • Liberal Neil.
    We had target seats in 1970 and lost most of them including Orpington, Bodmin ,Cheadle etc.
