Fun and (Serious) Games at the Cartoon Museum
Posted by jonathanfryer on Monday, 27th April, 2009
Nick Clegg came to give the London LibDem Euro-campaign its in-house launch at the Cartoon Museum in Bloomsbury this evening, over champagne and canapés and (one trusts) motivating speeches from Sarah Ludford MEP and myself. Nominations close next week and we have a particularly strong LibDem team in place in the capital, with a determination to ‘Make it 2!’ this time. Nick will be leading the national campaign from the front, drawing on his experience as both a former European official and an MEP, as well as understanding how crucial it is at this period to have closer cooperation with our EU partners. The Conservatives, like ostriches with their heads in the sand, somehow hope the economic crisis will go away if we stand alone, while Labour is so beset by its own internal divisions and the general air of fetid decomposition around the Brown administration that one goes into this election with not just hope but conviction — and just over five weeks to win a sufficient proportion of the electorate over!
