I’ve been asked to plug the new Lib Dem Anti ID Cards.
Happy to do so, but this is a blog and so people will forgive me if I make a few comments.
Firstly, please can we move away from the idea within the party that petition=campaign. I get so despairing because the Party’s Campaigns Department really seems to think that is all they need to do. It looks especially poor given the quality of the NO2ID site.
Secondly, could it not feature a bit of news on it about what the party is actually doing on ID cards? It is remarkably content-free.
The Lib Dems need to embrace single issue campaigning outside of election time and through it develop a supporters network. But that means running as effective single issue campaigns as NGOs, not a vague approximation.
