At the Party's Brighton conference this Spring, I was reminded of the preamble to our party's constitution:
"The Liberal Democrats exist to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society, in which we seek to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality and community and in which no one shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity."
I am proud to represent those values. When the media seem set on knocking us or the opposition hurls insults, during and after the Eastleigh By-Election campaign, I met many local residents on doorsteps, along streets and in meetings, I must remind myself of these values we stand for and the people we serve.
Britain needs the Liberal Democrats, now more than ever! They can see why Conservatives could not go too far in slashing our vital and vulnerable services. Why? The Liberal Democrats stood up for our values in government. We know they could have done more but they held the Conservatives back to think again! Yes, Britain needs the Liberal Democrats in the government!
In Hampstead and Kilburn, I know how close you came to winning the last General Election in 2010, only 800 votes between. Can I say you have a record to be proud of in Ed and the team, who ran a fantastic campaign. He and your local party inspired many members and supporters to aim higher.
Now you need to choose a new Parliamentary candidate, and I am asking you for your support. I want to help you get back to rebuilding your local government and membership base. I want to help strengthen your wards, your activity, and of course, I want to lead you in our campaign to win the Parliamentary seat of Hampstead and Kilburn.
