Some of you may have noticed things have gone a bit quiet recently, and may be wondering where we've been. It has been a long few months for me, and I have to apologise to the party for being absent. To many of you, however, the contents of this post should come as no surprise.
I officially took over as leader in the beginning of July, but I was actually working hard behind the scenes for several months before that, both during the GE and after Loz stepped down. Things went well for a while, and we had some success after the general election. We closed down the PPUK office and cut back on all outgoings, in order to reduce the massive, debilitating debt that the general election left us in. We made grand plans and started reforming the party structure. We streamlined some operations, and ran some good campaigns - including our first ever joint venture with the Open Rights Group. We even managed to claw our way out of debt (thanks to our dedicated supporters).
