CommentIsLinked@LDV: James Graham – ''Change' in the valleys'

by Stephen Tall on November 11, 2008

Lib Dem Voice has mentioned before the distinct lack of liberal commentary in the mainstream media; but we do of course have many Lib Dems who contribute with varying degrees of regularity to national newspapers and magazines. Whenever these appear, LDV is delighted to link to them: simply drop us a line at voice@libdemvoice.org.

Over at The Guardian’s Comment Is Free blog, James Graham takes a look back at the race for the Lib Dem presidency, and looks forward to the contest for leader of the Welsh Lib Dems. Read it in full here, but here’s a teaser:

The Liberal Democrats are now in the midst of yet another election, this time to succeed Lembit as the Welsh party leader. Trust me on this one, you should all be paying more attention to this election. While the Lib Dems could stumble along with a weak president in the background, the wrong choice in this election could prove fatal to the Lib Dems in Wales. And with tensions already forming in the One Wales coalition, who is elected as Welsh Liberal Democrat leader could have a major impact on the governance and direction of Wales over the next few years.
