** Congratulations to everyone who helped the party achieve such a great result in the May 5 elections. Gains of 180+ Council seats build our stature and keep us on course for taking those crucial 'blue wall' seats off the Conservatives at the next election - a 'hung' parliament is our best chance to achieve PR for the House of Commons**
Many of us have been shocked by how the current government has been able to remove fundamental protections and expand undemocratic measures (refugees being deemed 'illegal', the right to protest taken away, the independence of the electoral committee hollowed out and FPTP being expanded further to future Mayoral elections).
Liberal Democrat peer, Lord Chris Rennard, has written a 'where we are' report on the passage of the Elections Bill through the Lords. We've of course been supporting our Lords' opposition to the bill - and there will be at least one more round of lobbying coming up in late April.
