    In only FOUR DAYS' time (23rd February) the dreaded Elections Bill has its second reading in the House of Lords. At this reading, Peers will ask the question: "Do we want this legislation at all?" so this is our time to stop the Bill in its tracks.

    As Liberal Democrats, our answer is clear.

    Elections Bill - the fight's not over!

    Thank you for all your support in challenging the government's Elections Bill on Monday.

    It was great to see MPs up and down the country speaking out against the bill, with many acknowledging the strength of feeling of their constituents.

    Rushed through Parliament by the government, the Bill was carried by 325 votes in favour to 234 against.
