I've just come back from canvassing with Simon Wright and the team in Norwich South. The day suggests to me that (a) committed Lib Dems are more committed than ever, and (b) there are 'pro-Europeans' out there who have never voted for us before but who may do this time. Europe clearly matters.
There's just over a month to go to polling day. I, Jo Hayes and the other candidates will be with Nick Clegg at the national launch of the European campaign this Thursday in Colchester. If you can join us, please register here: http://www.libdems.org.uk/launch_of_the_european_campaign
We have a lot of literature to come, as many of us will have discovered in the vast stuffing operations last weekend. And the quality and punch of that literature has never been better.
Fundraising is gathering momentum - with over £5,000 in donations raised in the last two weeks - but the more money we continue to raise the more letters we can send directly to our likely supporters. In short, there's all to play for. Don't be put off by national polls: it's what happens across the East of England, and especially in our target areas, that will make all the difference.
With best wishes,
Andrew Duff MEP
