The fightback has started

It was refreshing to attend the first meeting post-slaughter of the Aberavon and Neath Liberal Democrats earlier this evening. After a day watching the Labour Party tearing itself apart on TV and Facebook (and incidentally continuing to ignore the real reasons why they were never going to challenge the Conservatives), it was good to be among people who were looking forward, not back. There were positive contributions from new members (part of over ten thousand the party has put on in the last week, I understand).

Now all we need to do is persuade more young people that slogging round the streets with leaflets and clipboards is an essential part of the democratic process and that there are rewards at the end of the day.
