To see out the old year, and usher in the new, Lib Dem Voice is asking you, our readers, for your votes in our special 2008 awards. So far, over 160 of you have spared a moment to express your views.
If you want to find out a little more about the nominees, simpy click here.
I’ll let you in on a couple of secrets…
Vince Cable is in the lead to be named Liberal Democrat Politician of the Year (with Chris Huhne, Lynne Featherstone and Steve Webb trailing);
Lembit Opik’s press release – “time for Lib Dems to stop the conspiracy against me” – is in the lead to be named Most Desperate Press Release of the Year;
The Campaigners on behalf of Jean Charles de Menezes (Justice4Jean.org) are – very narrowly – in the lead to be named Liberal Voice of the Year;
And Barack Obama’s election as US President is, unsuprisingly, and almost unanimously, your choice as the Defining Political Moment of the Year.
Of course, there’s still everything to play for, so if you haven’t yet voted do so now!
