Who I voted 2010’s Liberal Voice. And why Cameron’s a credible candidate.

by Stephen Tall on January 3, 2011

Over at Lib Dem Voice, I’ve defended David Cameron’s inclusion in our annual Liberal Voice of the Year poll — which, for the avoidance of all doubt, has always purposely excluded Lib Dems in order to recognise the liberal diaspora that extends across party divides.

Anyway, for the record I voted for Naomi Long, deputy leader of the Alliance Party of Northern Ireland and MP for Belfast East, for becoming the first liberal to be elected to Westminster from her part of the UK since 1914. Hers has been a heck of an achievement, both in campaigning and political terms.

Anyway, voting is still open. As I type, David Cameron is narrowly edging out Aung San Suu Kyi in the popularity stakes (not a sentence I expected ever to type). But there’s still time for it all to change…
