I am an experienced online journalist and political editor working for Trinity Mirror papers in the West Midlands and the North East, based in the Parliamentary Press Gallery at Westminster.

I understand how government, Parliament and political parties work. I am equally at home digging out stories from data, social media or interviews as I am covering major set-piece events or explaining how things work to readers.

I produce content which is shareable and promote my work on social media.

My experience with content management systems and knowledge of HTML allows me to include charts, embedded content from third parties and formatting in my work, to create content which encourages interaction and keeps readers on the page.

Being in Government "has led to a loss of identity and in turn a loss of support", according to the President of the Liberal Democrats.

MP Tim Farron suggests the past 19 months have been a miserable time - "particularly distressing", as he puts it - for the party.

He said: "Clearly we have not succeeded in communicating our message, which has led to a loss of identity and in turn a loss of support."

The message appears in the directory of the Lib Dem conference, taking place in Birmingham later this month. It's an official party document which will be handed out to delegates at Birmingham's ICC.

I was struck by how downbeat and unhappy he appeared to be.

Here's an extended extract:
