And the new chair of the English Liberal Democrats is….

Liz Leffman

…the excellent Liz Leffman, who performed so brilliantly well as our candidate in the Witney by-election, coming much closer than anyone expected in one of the safest Tory seats in the country.

I have worked with her on the Federal Finance and Administration Committee for five years now and I have the highest regard for her. She is one of those people who is always there with a calm and sensible solution when everyone else is scratching their heads. 

The English Party has some major issues of governance to resolve in the immediate future and the fact that Liz will lead it through that process is very good news indeed.

    “…the excellent Liz Leffman, who performed so brilliantly well as our candidate in the Witney by-election,” Yes, indeed. Just to wish you every success.

  • Hi Liz
    I don’t know you, but just wanted to congratulate you on both successes anyway (not many comments here yet – didn’t want you to think no-one cares :-).
    Well done and to echo Michael – every success for the future!

    Every one should welcome it when new people emerge on the national scene , sometimes with experience of youth , or of middle age ! It is true of many ,but we must particularly be glad when those talents not able to quite get into parliament often because of our lousy electoral system, make an impact .

    Good for Liz and us !

    Delighted for Liz and us Lib Dems. If all accounts are correct we have a good Chair.
    Not sure I knew that this was happening?
