Paddy Ashdown writes: 100 days to go

Welcome to the final 100 days of the campaign. For many of you this is the final lap in an almighty marathon that you have been running for months if not years.

Thank you so much for what you have already done. I know that whether you are a veteran activist or one of our thousands of new members, you’re part of the Liberal Democrats because you are up for this next phase.

Well, this election HQ is for you. The team here is dedicated to helping our candidates across the UK. This is the most integrated campaign we have ever run, in the national media, parliamentary seats and council elections we will all work hand in hand. Unlike the others, we have a clear strategy, a strong message, some of the best technology and a fire in our belly to deliver more. That means more policies to strengthen our economy, but at the same time hold firm to our values which demand a fairer society.

None of which can be achieved without guaranteeing the opportunities that everyone deserves. Everyone in our HQ, which is now officially open, is proud to be working alongside you in this campaign. We need to hear from you how it is working on the ground - give us your views and tell us of your experiences. Thank you.

Enjoy this short film and see you on the campaign trail.
