Anna Werrin RIP

Sad news has reached us here at Lib Dem Voice that Anna Werrin has died of a stroke. Anna worked for Charles Kennedy from the year he was first elected to Parliament, in 1983, and was his head of office until his resignation as leader of the Lib Dems in 2006. She was subsequently Chris Huhne’s campaign manager in his second leadership attempt, in 2007.

On behalf of the team here at LDV, we extend our sympathies to Anna’s family and friends. Please do leave your tributes in the comments thread, below.

  • That’s very sad – I worked with Anna indirectly but never met her – love to family and friends xx

  • Very sad news. Anna was a complete star during the many times I crossed her path during my Reseacher days. She’ll be missed.

    She had real strength, humour and judgement in dealing with many complex issues in her years working quite truly in the heart of things in Westminster. Sincere condolences to Anna’s family, and those good friends who worked closely with her for many years.

  • I am a deeply shocked, I worked with Anna in 2005. She was a truly wonderful lady. I only found out about her passing in the last few minutes, the World needs more people like Anna. My thoughts go out to Anna’s family and all that knew her.

    The major political problem with supporting renewable energy is that 'environmental groups' never support the progress that is made. They always say it not enough....
