Huhne campaign website launched

Chris Huhne now has a campaign website.

His launch statement begins:

After the events of the last few weeks, our party needs a new start. New hope and new horizons.

We have a springboard. The most MPs since 1923. Talent galore on those benches. Four times as many councillors as thirty years ago. Control of great cities like Liverpool and Newcastle.

But we need to be ready for another great stride forward. To put liberalism into power. We are closer to that goal than ever. Our children will never forgive us if we fail our chance.

We need to come together again around our fundamental principles. Freedom. Fairness. And a sustainable future for our children.

Anyone can use warm words. Anyone can pretend to care. But the test is not words but deeds. Where the Tories talk, Liberal Democrats must take tough decisions. We must sharpen our proposals and challenge them to follow. Our programme for domestic reform is crucial.
