Easy as Qwerty

A quick but public thanks to the Lib Dems’ innovations team for helping make online campaigning so much easier.

A particular local issue has arisen in my ward – a proposal by the County Council to close a popular underpass. Within 20 minutes, thanks to some techno-wizardry available to any Lib Dem party member, I was able to create from scratch a dedicated web presence and online petition, Headington SOS. You can too, here.

Within an hour, 17 people have signed up… It’s no substitute for door-knocking and leaflet delivery, but it’s a handy alternative if you’re working late at the office anyway.
