Welcome to the Basingstoke and Deane Liberal Democrats.

It's an exciting time to be a Liberal Democrat. Membership is at record levels and our message is resonating with the public, as our performance in the 2017 General Election, when we won 50 percent more seats, demonstrates.

Closer to home, the Basingstoke branch now has around 50 percent more members than it had a year ago.

Above all, we're here to help so get in touch or visit our Facebook page if you want us to tackle an issue on your behalf.

We're on our way up, and that gives us an incredible opportunity to make a meaningful difference at both a national and local level. So get on board and help us to #ChangeBritainsFuture.

    Thank you all so much.

    I am delighted, honoured, absolutely over the moon to stand before you as the leader of the Liberal Democrats.

    And as the first woman to lead our party.

    I am delighted, honoured, absolutely over the moon to stand before you as the leader of the Liberal Democrats.

    I joined this party when I was 17. And over the last twenty-two years, through all the ups and downs, the Liberal Democrats have felt like a family to me.

    A decade ago we all knew that there was an economic crisis. Banks were collapsing. Credit was drying up. Bankruptcies. Job losses. Escalating budget deficits. A big drop in the currency. You didn't need a Nobel Prize in economics to realise that something was terribly amiss. It was the biggest financial crisis in over a century, and the biggest drop in production and incomes since the interwar period.

    Polling week is coming up and we need you in Brecon and Radnorshire to help us win and get Jane Dodds elected to Parliament.

    It's incredibly helpful for the team if we know where volunteers are going so we can best prepare leaflets, canvassing packs and clerical work.

    So RSVP here to let us know when you can join us.

    This time next week, Vince Cable will be the former leader of the Liberal Democrats.

    Ballots close at 1pm on Monday 22nd July. That means you have six days to have your say on where our party goes next.

    Later that day, either Ed Davey or Jo Swinson will be announced as our party's new leader. They're both fantastic candidates and either would make a fine leader for the Lib Dems going forward. You can find out more about their plans for our party here:

    It's been equal parts incredible, exhausting and humbling to be at the centre of a massive Lib Dem parliamentary by-election.

    I'm honoured to join a select group of people who get the full national parliamentary by-election treatment, with the best of the best Lib Dem campaigners in the country fighting to get me elected.

    As I write this on Friday, I am about to set off for Brecon and Radnorshire, to help the brilliant Jane Dodds campaign in the by-election. It will be my third visit since the Recall petition first started. Make no bones about it, Jane is a brilliant candidate and our team there is outstanding, but we need more people to help over the next few weeks: we have a tough fight on our hands in a very rural seat. We need more people to help deliver leaflets, knock on doors and help with clerical work. Please, please, come and help. Postal votes land on doorsteps, and we need to call on postal voters this coming weekend, before many voters go on holiday.
