George on stage
George asked Wendy Chamberlain MP and Lord Dick Newby to help ensure that parliamentarians are fully engaged with their overseas constituents and that the interests of British overseas voters are included in the party's general election manifesto. George also succeeded in having a manifesto amendment on China passed at conference and spoke at a fringe meeting
Jenny and Tom led our first ever Lib Dem conference training session for Lib Dem local parties on how to win the overseas vote". Key target seats such as Cheltenham and Wimbledon were present amongst a large turnout
Many thanks to Lord Chris Rennard for our Lib Dems Abroad meeting with Head of the Electoral Commission John Pullinger (3rd from right). We are determined that the extension of voting rights for all eligible Brits abroad will be in time for the next UK General Election

And finally a bit of fun as Lib Dems Abroad say "Time's Up for Rishi Sunak!"
