There were some anxious moments as the poor man was stuck on a non-moving train for at least 50 minutes. But we managed to keep the speeches going and our audience was made of stern stuff. So when he finally arrived over a hundred people got hear an excellent speech outlining the Lib Dem approach to crime and justice issues.
The essential theme of his speech was criticism of the other two main parties for putting the politics of fear at the heart of their approach to home affairs and that it was the Lib Dems job to counteract that by putting the politics of hope at the heart of ours. Personally it was really good to hear a clearly liberal take on these issues and I think it went down well with the audience.
