A Post-Resignation Thank You
They say hindsight is a wonderful thing. In my case, it truly has been wonderful. The amount of support I have received post resignation as Liberal Youth Campaigns Officer has been overwhelming. Over 400 people have now seen my resignation blog post, including Lib Dem MPs such as Party President Tim Farron. So I thought it only right that I express a thank you to those who have supported me at what is quite a difficult time, especially having been involved in Liberal Youth for 5 years.
Here are some of my favourites:
[Email] I was shocked at the illiberal manner in which you have been treated, as I have just read on Facebook, and I fully understand your resignation.I first met you when you were in your pushchair, and have kept up to date with your progress.I was impressed when I was part of the interviewing panel for the District Council elections by both your fluency and your achievements. I have followed your Facebook entries with interest. You are a young man of principle with much to give.If, as ______ of _____ Liberal Democrats, I can write to anyone to express my outrage, I will be pleased to do so. I thought, however, I would write to ask you whether you would be pleased to have my support, to whom I should write, and any further information that would make what I wrote really hit the button.
And lastly, my Dad who has always been supportive:

I never wrote my resignation blog post with the intention of getting so much support, I did it because I thought it only right to tell Liberal Youth members the truth about my resignation. Having not received a single interaction slating my decision, I am glad I did.
