I'm a fully paid up LibDemer again (Yay!)

Just renewed my party memebrship with the LibDems. You can basically pay whatever you like (it's really more of a donation than anything else). They also don't take corporate or union sponsorship (unlike the other main two parties) so everything they do relies on grass root support.

They do have a reccommended membership fee which has gone up since last time I joined but hell, it's election year so I dopn't begrudge throwing a bit more money their way.

So with my newly brought activism what should I now attempt to do......

Poll #416089 Party Activist

What should I do to for the LibDems?

I used to be the youngest 'official' party member.
My Mum was a member and I used to help her deliver leaflets and stuff. She also ran for parliament, but failed to win.

Not that's particularly relevent, but I'm also a member, though I'm not active any more. (I used to be pretty active). I have agreed (because the candidate phoned me up) to deliver leaflets in my road and the surrounding roads for the election, but only after insisting to him that this was all I was going to do because "I'm a recovering activist who's terrified of being sucked back in again!" :)

Which would be quite easy, given that both my parents are still very active.

Start small and locally, and then set your sights higher. Try also to avoid the corruption that seems endemic in the political world ;)

Could I pick two for the poll?
Run for parliament while drunk.

I still havn't decided if politics is an adults game played by children, or a child's game played by adults.

But go you for getting involved,
we need less politicians in politics.
