So what have London Liberal Youth been up to? Our series of talks examining Liberal Democrat identity and how coalition affects this have now finished – we heard from Deputy Leader Simon Hughes at UCL; Former Chief Sec and key negotiator of the Coalition Agreement David Laws at LSE; and finally Foreign Office Minister Jeremy Browne at SOAS.
Now we are concentrating entirely on getting out on the doorstep for the Mayoral & GLA elections in only a few weeks time. We’ve also had a number of by-elections, including Dollis Hill where we beat Labour in the ward next door to where Ken Livinstone lives!
This weekend we have been out with Energy Secretary Ed Davey, our GLA Leader Caroline Pidgeon and SW London campaigner Munira Wilson. Recently we took part in an Action Day in Tom Brake MP’s constituency.
Liberal Youth Action Days (and campaigning in general) are not just a good laugh and way of getting practical on-the-ground skills, but also a great way to meet London Lib Dems, and give something back to the party. It’d be great to see you at one soon.
Last Wednesday (18th) London Liberal Youth held our first big event of the year – a parliamentary reception, hosted by the fantastic Tessa Munt MP.
This morning Brian Paddick & London Liberal Democrats launched our Fairer Fares campaign in train & tube stations across London, with members of London Liberal Youth getting involved alongside GLA candidates & Team London campaigners.
Our Mayoral Candidate Brian Paddick is calling for ‘early bird’ fares for those who commute before the morning rush hour and part-time travel cards for those who don’t travel as often.
He attacked Ken Livingstone’s plans to cut fares as unaffordable, but Brian claims ‘It’s time to take a new approach and these ideas would make travelling more affordable, flexible and would reduce some peak time overcrowding.’
As the independent website “Mayor Watch” tweeted,
LibDems have been calling for a 1hr bus ticket since 09 http://www.mayorwatch.co.uk/london-libdems-call-for-one-hour-bus-ticket/20097417
London Liberal Democrats is pleased to announce that following a ballot of our members, Brian Paddick has been selected to be our candidate in the London Mayoral Election 2012.
“I want to thank the returning officer for the impartial and professional way he has run this selection process and I want to thank my fellow candidates for engaging in a high standard of debate throughout the campaign. I also want to thank my excellent team without whom I would not have been selected. Most of all, I want to thank London Liberal Democrat members who placed their trust and confidence in me to be their candidate for Mayor of London – I won’t let you down.
