LDER had a very successful and enjoyable Spring Conference in Southport. At our stall, we ran a consultation on Lords Reform, finding a wide range of views amongst party members and sparking lots of interesting conversations.
We also helped to support a fringe event run by Your Liberal Britain entitled ‘Why should anyone care about electoral reform?’ Liberal Democrats certainly do care, as was clear from the packed room full of people wanting to help identify successful messages which might convey the importance of the issue to voters.
Groups worked together to think about persuasive messages targeted towards different types of people, such as:
- Do you want one party in perpetual control?
- Steady the political ship.
- Gets you representatives who love what you love.
- You vote should count like everyone else’s.
We’ll now be working through the workshop outcomes in detail, to think about how and where the messages identified can best be deployed.
