After five years in the wilderness something has to change.
How can we grow our party at all levels? Why can we make gains in local and European Parliament elections, but not translate that into General Election gains? What’s next for the Liberal Democrats?
Liberal Democrat Expand was launched in 2016, inspired by Gov. Howard Dean’s ’50 State Strategy’ for the Democrats. Our party needs to be able to grow and contest elections at all levels – from local councils to Parliament. That means we need to share more best practice, and invest in training and support to help our local parties grow right across the country. Nowhere should be a no-go area for the Liberal Democrats.
