That LibDemVoice survey on the party presidency (which, ahem, called it wrong): 8 thoughts from me

by Stephen Tall on November 30, 2014

What happened there, then? I refer to the LibDemVoice survey of party members reported here on Wednesday which showed Daisy Cooper with a clear lead over Sal Brinton in the contest for party president; when actual votes were counted the result was reversed. Is this moment to the LDV surveys what the 1992 election was […]

A chance to say thank you to Tim Farron

by Stephen Tall on November 30, 2014

The Lib Dems now have a President-elect: yesterday it was announced that Sal Brinton had won the only post other than that of party leader subject to an all-member ballot. Congratulations to her; and a big thanks to runner-up Daisy Cooper as well as Liz Lynne for ensuring a healthy debate. However, this post isn’t […]

Election for Lib Dem Party President: who will win, according to our exclusive survey

by Stephen Tall on November 26, 2014

Lib Dem Voice has polled our members-only forum  to discover what Lib Dem members think of various political issues, the Coalition, and the performance of key party figures. The survey closed at 10am today. 747 party members responded – thank you – and we’ll be publishing the full results here. Tim Farron’s four-year stint as […]

The 3 Lib Dem party president candidates on what they’d do in my “It’s 8th May 2015? scenario

by Stephen Tall on November 7, 2014

A couple of weeks ago I asked all three candidates for the Lib Dem party presidency a deliberately provocative question: It’s 8th May, 2015. The Lib Dems have lost some MPs but are still a force to be reckoned with in the House of Commons. Nick Clegg announces he will step aside to let a […]

A week today, Wednesday, 29th October, ballot papers will be sent to all c.44,000 Lib Dem members enabling us to vote for the next Party President in succession to Tim Farron, who’s held the post for the past four years. Other than the party leader, the presidency is currently the only other post in the […]

A new Lib Dem presidential candidate enters the race

by Stephen Tall on August 30, 2014

This is the text of the email I received this morning from Daisy Cooper: Today, I’m delighted to announce my candidacy for Liberal Democrat Party President, with the backing of Catherine Bearder MEP, Norman Baker MP, experienced councillors and some of the party’s finest campaigners. I have huge ambitions for our party. I’m 32 and […]

Linda Jack to announce Lib Dem party president campaign

by Stephen Tall on April 19, 2014

Lib Dem activist Linda Jack will shortly announce that she will be a candidate for the post of Party President in the all-member election that will take place this autumn. To date, two candidates have declared their intention to run: Baroness (Sal) Brinton and Pauline Pearce. I understand Linda will officially throw her hat into […]

First two Lib Dem presidential hopefuls declare themselves

by Stephen Tall on March 8, 2014

Party president Tim Farron’s second (and non-renewable) term of office finishes at the end of this year, after four years in the role. He doubtless expected most of the challenges that come from the Lib Dems being in coalition with the Conservatives. He wouldn’t have expected to have to manage the fall-out from the allegations […]
