    Q - I'm sure being at the centre of a parliamentary by-election is impossibly exciting, but also busy, exhausting and overwhelming, with huge highs and lows. What stands out the most for you from the campaign?

Seeing Lib Dems come together and campaign together - that is definitely what stands out for me.
