I joined the party 2 days after the 2015 General Election, rather in a state of shock at the decimation of the Liberal Democrat representation in Parliament. Whatever might be the reasons for that, it seemed to me quite wrong that the voice of a party that in my view represented moderate, decent, common sense opinion should not be prominently heard. So rather than merely complain about the injustice of it all, I decided to do something about it.
And I’m very glad I did - along with thousands of others of the same mind who have joined up for the same reasons. Quite apart from the politics, its been great fun meeting new people of a similar outlook, getting involved in various campaigning events, and taking advantage of the many opportunities the party has for volunteering.
