Liberty Director Shami Chakrabarti was the clear winner of our Liberal Voice 2007 poll, taking 101 votes (a third of all votes cast). Her only serious opposition was Radio 4’s The Now Show, who took the lead for the first day but came second with 72 votes (24%).
The other candidates were: John Bercow with 18 votes (6%), Samuel Brittain 15 (5%), Al Gore 30 (10%), Simon Jenkins 20 (7%), Philippe 10 Legrain (3%), Bob Marshall-Andrews 18 (6%) and Craig Murray 21 (7%).
It’s perhaps no clear surprise that Sharmi won, given the number of nominations we got for her to be one the shortlist. You can find the Liberty website here and Shami stars in the ‘Charge or Release’ campaign video at their MySpace page.
On that theme, our next poll asks how many days should be permitted under detention without charge.
