Tom Parkin, out campaigning in Sheffield, South Yorkshire

Liberals must come together to meet the challenges ahead…

Liberal Base is a platform and blog to better connect liberally-minded people – activists, candidates, campaigners and voters.

We are not a political party. We will never put up candidates for public office.

Instead, Liberal Base is an effort to create a positive and constructive space to share ideas, form alliances and work effectively together.

Activism is more than signing a petition (not that we won’t promote some!). It’s about going out and working in your immediate community. This takes courage, and many need the help of a supportive online community.

This is Liberal Base.

Tom Parkin, Founder and Editor of Liberal Base
