Baroness Scott of Needham Market, who has been President of the Liberal Democrat Party since January 2009, was the guest speaker at the party's constituency dinner at the Royal Victoria Hotel in St Leonards on Friday night.

Following an afternoon's work on the stump in Winchelsea, Baroness Scott's speech was a personal account of how she became involved in local politics, the business world, and the path she has taken to a seat in the House of Lords. She also spoke about the increasing enthusiasm with which the Lib Dem leadership team of Nick Clegg and Vince Cable is being received at a national level.

Lib Dem parliamentary candidate for Hastings & Rye Nick Perry said,

"It was a great pleasure to be able to welcome Ros to the constituency and I am grateful for a truly inspirational speech. It has put us in great spirits for the campaign!

"I am sure she is absolutely right that the more people see of Nick Clegg and Vince Cable the more they realise that it is the Liberal Democrats who are offering a different sort of politics. I for one will be working flat out to make sure that people know what are our key policies, in the weeks and months leading to the General Election", said Nick.

The General Election must be held before 3 June this year.
