A few weeks ago we selected Tom Bartleet to be our prospective candidate at the next general election ( see  Tom Bartleet selected as Liberal Democrat PPC for South Suffolk - Babergh Liberal Democrats (  )

We decided to launch his campaign on Saturday in Capel St Mary.

When day broke it was lashing down with rain and we did wonder whether we should postpone things to another day. Would anyone turn up?

Despite the weather the photograph shows we had a fantastic turnout in support of Tom

The weather may have been wet and uninviting but the reaction on the doorstep was warm and welcoming. Lots of great conversations and support for Tom. It is clear the psycho-drama of the Conservative government as it focuses on infighting and factionalism rather than the issues that impact everyday life has created a mood for change.

We potentially have a long campaign ahead. If you would like to help Tom who is not a career politician campaign to replace our current " yes man" Tory MP who has supported the antics of Boris Johnson and the chaos of policies of the Conservatives for most of the past decade please get in contact and let us know at Volunteer - Babergh Liberal Democrats (
