Take your mind off Coronavirus with the virtual launch of the Northern Liberal Network, the party's new voice for Northern England.
We've come together because we believe that, while the party has strong policies that would benefit our regions, we have failed to communicate those over successive General Elections. As a result, we still have only one MP in the North. With four years till the next election, now is the time to build a vision that will carry us through it. And by taking control of key councils like Hull, Sheffield and Stockport, we can showcase what Liberal Democrats can do.
While the road ahead is long, Coronavirus will eventually be defeated, and we'll need to start rebuilding our economy. We cannot risk further entrenching the regional inequalities that have held so many people back. We must seize this opportunity to advocate a distinct, radical, liberal vision for our regions - that looks beyond infrastructure and enables our regions to chart our own futures.
At our launch event, we'll be discussing the issues we want the party campaigning on and how that will help us win - and how the Northern Liberal Network can help.
- Lord Dick Newby, Liberal Democrat leader in the House of Lords and NLN Hon President
