  • Ah, electoral reform at last!

  • I read about this earlier, they could have tossed coins but the Tory candidate felt he had bad luck with coin tosses.

  • Please, Please, Please STOP using the word “anorak” or “political anorak”! It is demeaning to say the least.

    We have spent the last 10 or 15 years trying to shed the perceived Lib Dem image of “woolly pully, bearded sandal brigade” to become credible politicians in smart suits and smartly dressed.

    This kind of remark puts us right back to where we used to be and as long as folk still think we are “the anorak brigade” (as well as all the other epithets) we are not going to regain any ground. It’s going to be hard enough to claw our way back up to the top – please don’t scupper our chances by using this type of terminology!

  • Rebekah. You’re SUCH an anorak!

    frankie, no problem, really. Remaining and paying annually is a good thing, and the UK having no voice or influence is well-established pre-Brexit practice.
