Would you spend your Saturday afternoon listening to ten people’s views on Europe?


Even amongst political anoraks, European affairs experts are the rarest of rare beasts.

I was in two minds as to whether to attend a “members’ meeting” (as we must now call them) to hear from the ten Liberal Democrat candidates for South East region for the European Parliamentary Elections in 2014.

In the event I was glad I went, if only to do justice to ten extraordinarily well qualified candidates, all bristling with knowledge of and passion for getting things done with Europe.

After taking notes and carefully considering the pros and cons of each candidate, as well as the list of ‘what we are looking for in European candidates’, I have now ordered them from one to ten and licked down my envelope to the Electoral Reform Society.

Well done to all the candidates and good luck!
