Bigged up by the boss

In the latest letter to the troops (a note from a senior Lib Dem, not sent out mid crisis - there must be something TERRIBLE happening we don't know about), Nick is kind enough to big up our Facebook page 'Liberal Democrats for Lords Reform'.

So I'll return the favour and big up his letter to the troops.

That's the sort of democratic organisation we are.

Dear Richard,

We are reaching an important phase in our challenge to reform the British establishment.

David Cameron, Ed Miliband and I all have to step up, and make sure we don’t let this moment pass us by.

One by one, some of the pillars of the establishment - Parliament, the media, the banking sector - have been disgraced. So there has never been a more urgent time to fix our broken establishment.

That is why I hosted a summit yesterday with some fantastic democracy campaigners, including 38 Degrees, the Electoral Reform Society, Compass, the Fabian Society and Unlock Democracy.

We are in the final stages of cross-party talks on party funding, we are about to publish a Bill for Lords Reform, we are enacting major reforms of our banking sector, and the Leveson Inquiry is opening a lid on politics, the media and the police.  

It is important that we all work together to deliver long lasting reform.

Leader of the Liberal Democrats and Deputy Prime Minister
