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 […]

by Stephen Tall on November 4, 2014

A couple of weeks ago I blogged about the forthcoming election for the Lib Dem party presidency – the post about to be vacated by Tim Farron – between Sal Brinton, Daisy Cooper and Liz Lynne. Here’s the question I (…)

“It’s 8th May, 2015.” My scenario-question to the Lib Dem candidates for party president

by Stephen Tall on October 23, 2014

I’m genuinely undecided who to vote for in the election for Lib Dem party president. I know a little, not a lot, of each of the three candidates: Sal Brinton, Daisy Cooper and Liz Lynne. At the hustings event I (…)

by Stephen Tall on October 22, 2014

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 […]

All in a day’s Lib Dem conference: hustings, fringes, OMOV and sex work

by Stephen Tall on October 4, 2014

It’s felt like a slow start to conference – I’m habituated to the Friday night rally and meaty policy debates starting at bleary o’clock on Saturday morning. But with the rally moved to Saturday night, conference itself wasn’t opened until this afternoon. However, that meant there was time this morning for the first official hustings […]

It’s 8 May 2015. Nick Clegg’s resigned. Who speaks for the Lib Dems?

by Stephen Tall on September 9, 2014

Imagine the following scenario… At the next general election, 7th May 2015, there is a hung parliament in which the Lib Dems hold the balance of power. However, the party doesn’t do very well. Nick Clegg resigns as party leader, or at (…)

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 […]
