The caring Lib Dems

In the past the party has sometimes been accused (not always fairly) of not looking after their candidates emotional wellbeing. 2005 is a different beast. As a female candidate I have received my lilac coloured Gender Balance Task Force Teddy Bear (now sitting on the lap of the teddy wearing colours of the Joint Specialist Language college) and Friday's post contained a jiffy bag labelled "only to be opened in an emergency" - despite lack of emergency the bag was opened to reveal a choccy bar (in Lib Dem wrapping) and a couple of useful phone numbers.
