Good News for the Party

Following the Liberal Democrats' great victory in the North Shropshire by-election, a number of political analysts have looked at the result and are making some bold predictions for the prospects of future Lib Dem successes, local and national.

The latest of these, written by two politics academics at the London School of Economics, can be seen here -

As the report indicates, following the recent failures of the current Government and the disastrous performance of the Prime Minister, politics in Britain are in a very fluid state. For most people, the official Labour opposition are not effective and many of them, desperate to see a real challenge to the Conservatives, are turning to the Liberal Democrats.

Here in South Norfolk, we are very keen to grasp this opportunity. We are making our plans for a serious campaign leading up to the next General Election, due in 2024. However, our first target is May 2023 when the next South Norfolk Council elections are to be held. We already provide the only serious opposition to the Tories who run the Council, but are confident we can make significant gains in 2023 and even regain control.
