Review of the 2014 European & Local Elections Campaign

After the elections in May, the Leader tasked a group with reviewing the elections, assessing what worked and what didn't, and produce recommendations to improve our campaigning for the future.

On Monday, the Review Group presented our findings to the Leader and later to the Federal Executive. I am pleased to say that they endorsed both the report and its recommendations, and we will now set about putting them into practice well in advance of next year’s elections.

Julian Huppert MP writes: Emergency comms data legislation

As a Liberal, I care passionately about civil liberties, privacy, and the need to limit abusive state surveillance.

But I also know that there is a need for the police and intelligence agencies to have the tools to do the job we give them - as long as they are carefully controlled, appropriately used, and proportionate to the threat faced.

David Laws MP writes: Submit your ideas for our next manifesto

When Nicky Jones came along to our Manifesto Roadshow in Yeovil last November, she shared with us her experiences as a carer. I was struck by her tremendous sacrifice in supporting her father, and by her plea for the Liberal Democrats to stand up as the “party of carers” and to offer them more support.
