WATCH: Lib Dem campaign launch in Tiverton and Honiton

Yesterday, Ed Davey went to Honiton to eat ice cream, wield some oranges and launch Richard Foord’s campaign to win the Tiverton and Honiton by-election. There were lots of activists there to help.

Local Devon Live reporter Lewis Clarke posted a long video including chats with Ed, Richard and Lib Dem activists on the doorsteps. It’s a lovely watch. And there is a cute dog. What more encouragement could you want to help Richard?

Do send us your pictures of campaigning in Tiverton and Honiton for us to post. Party President Mark Pack has been there already and is no doubt poised to return.

    Good to hear from Ed Davy there is no pact with Labour now or in the future.

  • Really good article. The candidate and activists came across really well.

    I understand that a British Army Major commands a Company of about 100-150 personnel. Given that a Battalion-size group of up to several hundred Lib Dem guerrillas could be marching down to Devon in the weeks ahead, I suggest that Ed should promote Richard Foord to Honorary Lieutenant-Colonel.

    He was a schoolie (Educational and Training Services officer), so no marching towards the sound of gunfire.

  • A Lab-Lib pincer movement is the most effective way to strike fear into the Tories

    A formal pact between them won’t happen, but they can be bolder about working together to evict the Conservatives

    LibDem Mp’s over doubled in ’97 with the arrangement with Blair and increased into 50’s and 60’s under a Labour Government. They then came crashing down to 8 under a majority Tory Government.

    Tory Candidate is one Helen Hurford

    From Conservative Home: “Hurford is a former headteacher, and has taught in schools across the constituency, before setting up her own business in 2019.”

    Labour and Cons have now selected their candidates. If one had been told in advance that one candidate was a former Major, one a former headteacher and one a businesswoman would one have correctly guessed to which Party each belonged?
