Well, it seems that somebody has been listening to me. Step forward Party President Tim Farron.
He sent out an e-mail last week which was much better. I'd maybe have improved it slightly by adding in a link to the Save Our Police Facebook page as well but I'm happy with what's gone out. It's clearly AV focussed, but at least it acknowledges that we have a campaign going on up here. And that Scottish election will, I suspect, bring a massive turnout for the Yes campaign with it.
Take a look at Tim's e-mail.
We're in the last stretch now - we have less than two weeks to go to May 5th, but it's never been so important to get out there and get campaigning with even more energy, for the important Scottish Parliamentary elections and for Fairer Votes for Westminster.
Tavish Scott, the other 93 candidates and their teams are already campaigning flat out, in the constituencies and regions across Scotland for every Liberal Democrat vote. I was out campaigning with Jim Hume and Jeremy Purvis on a recent visit.
When David Cameron visited Scotland this week, Danny Alexander challenged him to listen to the experience of people who already use AV, as you do in local by-elections across Scotland.
He would have learnt that using the AV system is simple, straightforward, and does not cost any more.
Having heard from people that AV is as easy as 1-2-3, David Cameron should ask the 'no' campaign to stop the ridiculous scare stories. People in Scotland will not be scared or bought by the 'No' campaign - we all know that AV is a small change that will make a big difference.
Our job now is to make sure we have the plans and the people to get out the vote. Make sure you include 'YES' in all your final literature. If you need additional Lib Dem YES leaflets contact Linda Wilson at Linda.Wilson@ScotLibDems.org.uk
Here are some other ideas of how you can get involved in the campaign:
- If you haven't already, get in touch with your local party and get campaigning for the Yes vote.
- Speak to your friends and neighbours about why they should vote Yes on May 5th and give them this handy 'How to Vote' guide.
- Download a poster, print and put it up in your window.
- If your local party doesn't have any activities planned, you can download a knocking up leaflet to print and go speak to people in your area who might be in favour of Fairer Votes.
Go on - keep campaigning for Fairer Votes and more MSPs for Holyrood!
Not perfect - it would maybe get a 7.5 to 8 out of 10, but a definite step in the right direction. Well done to whoever sorted that out.
