But that is where we are – the Liberal Democrat fightback has begun! Why? perhaps because a lot of people believe in this:
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. We champion the freedom, dignity and well-being of individuals, we acknowledge and respect their right to freedom of conscience and their right to develop their talents to the full. We aim to disperse power, to foster diversity and to nurture creativity. We believe that the role of the state is to enable all citizens to attain these ideals, to contribute fully to their communities and to take part in the decisions which affect their lives.
Why don’t you join? Membership starts at £1 for students and the minimum regular membership is £12 – £1 a month – and you can pay by direct debit.
You’re not alone – 10,045 people have joined since 10pm last Thursday (up until time of posting) – roughly one new member every 40 seconds – and if you want a fairer society then please join us. Membership in Brentwood has increased by 20% in the last five days and we look forward to meeting new members and making a difference here in Brentwood, where we are the second largest party on Brentwood Council. Nationally, we have just past the 55,000 members mark!
Our revival is just beginning….roll on 2020!
Oh, and one final thing, if you join by 3rd June you’ll get a vote to help decide our new party leader!
