    Today the LDDA exec were joined by Ed Davey to discuss the ways we can move forward with increasing accessibility both internally in the party and externally. We've provided advice to be circulated to local parties and are looking forward to seeing that as the first step of many. Ed spoke to us about working with HQ, improving candidate accessibility and pushing forward with being better as a party. He's also asked us to look into how disabled people specifically are being impacted by the Living Crisis.

    Of course, such a swing would see a non-Conservative MP elected here, but I think it goes deeper than that. As someone that used to be a floating voter, it's the move to extreme versions of the main parties that caused me to settle on the centrist option in 2019 (The Liberal Democrats). I've now been campaigning in the last 3 bi-elections, so my conclusions come from doorstep conversations. FYI all 3 bi-elections have been in what is called (true blue seats) - a term I don't like myself as it infers people don't think about who they are voting for.

    Tensions are running high in Harborough as a Conservative Block vote stopped all but a handful of Councillors from seeing a detailed confidential report.

    In an electric atmosphere Lib Dem Leader on Harborough District Council, Cllr Phil Knowles, backed by his Deputy Cllr Roger Dunton took the fight to get the report released to all councillors to the heart of the Council Chamber. Click the link to read the Harborough Mail Article

    We saw last year what a huge boost it gave to the party getting two new excellent MPs elected in Parliamentary by-elections. It's good for their constituents and also good for the party's prospects across the whole country.

    We've also seen this month how Conservative MPs have failed to do what our country needs - to remove Boris Johnson from 10 Downing Street.
