The last word on the ‘first Liberal leader since the 1920s’ PMQs?

by Stephen Tall on July 21, 2010

Were the Lib Dems right to tweet earlier today that Nick Clegg would taoday become “the first Liberal leader since 1922 to lead PMQs”? That’s the question that’s been raging today.

My LDV Co-Editor Mark Pack believes he has the definitive answer, and has blogged it in his professional capacity here.

His conclusion: “strictly speaking Nick Clegg won’t be the first Liberal (Democrat) leader since 1922 to answer Prime Minster questions.” He is, however, the first Liberal to answer questions in place of the Prime Minister since 1922.

Dr Pack has spoken; surely there can be nothing left to add?
