From Liberal Democrat Voice to Mastermind

Will Howells on MastermindWill Howells was one of the earliest contributors to Liberal Democrat Voice, helping to set up the site in 2006  The first post under his name, on an Unlock Democracy report about political membership and activism, came on 19th October 2006. He stayed with the team till 2008.

He’s taking part in this year’s Mastermind and was on the show broadcast on Friday.

You can watch him taking questions from John Humphrys on his specialist subject, the band Suede, here. The photo shows him in the famous black chair and is taken from his Facebook with his permission.

We’re not going to give away any secrets or spoilers, but it’s fair to say that we were on the edge of our seats.

  • It was quite a sight. One of those subjects you can’t help but wonder why they are so interested, but impressed by the extent of the knowledge and recall!

    Well played, Will!
