ALTER actively fosters awareness of LVT among the Liberal Democrat grass roots and as part of this we ran an ALTER stand at the South Central Regional Conference on 22 October, held near Chandler's Ford. Activists were cheered by the positive Witney by-election result. The key message: there are new members in our party, but very low awarness of LVT, and we have a mountain to climb even in making activists aware of our economic ideas. But we can get new members if we put our case across well!

As the Brexit debate has shown, facts and arguments are not enough. We need to strike a simple emotional note to put our message across. We must name and shame the generation of property owning freeloaders who benefit from the investment that the whole of society makes yet make a neglibible contribution to it.
