So if you are in the Cambridge area, and would like to offer Andrew your help and support on the ground, I am sure he will be most grateful, his contact details can be found on his blog HERE.
Obviously, we are a very new and very unknown party—we don't expect miracles. But the time has come to act as a political party and stand for election.
Good luck, Andrew, and onwards to a libertarian land...
UPDATE: the Appalling Strangeness believes that LPUK could ride the zeitgeist.
No party in the Commons can exploit what is going on; they've all been at it, and the few good MPs are the exception rather than the rule. So we are at a point where one party stands aside from the troughing that we have seen from MPs. One party that was actually partially created because of the troughing of MPs. I think LPUK have been handed a gift wrapped moment in history—and I hope they rise to the occasion.
I don't quite know how they (well, we) could exploit the zeitgeist, although as an armchair political observer, I have some pretty good ideas. From an intellectual point of view, it will be very interesting to see how the party responds to what has happened.
It would be great to see a minor party riding the wave, and taking this opportunity to seize the moment and drastically increase their visibility.
And on an emotional level as well I'd like to see LPUK grabbing this opportunity and making the most of it. Not just because I am a member, but because the sorry debacle of MPs' expenses has shown more than ever that there is a crying need for a party that will stand against the status quo, and both articulate and do what is right. LPUK is morally right; let's hope they/it/we can seize this opportunity and make the most of it as a spring board to getting the message that there is another way out there.
Like the Nameless Libertarian, I believe that maybe, just maybe, this is indeed our time—and yet it has come sooner than we expected. And if a snap General Election is called, it will be a year sooner than we expected.
So, please do join us (for a mere £10) and help us "to seize the moment", or donate and help LPUK to make the most of this opportunity.
If you are already a member, you can find all of these badges, and the code to use them, on the Resources page of the LPUK website.
