    Jade Holden is on Twitter at @jade_elizabeth and Sophie Bridger is on the Exec as Scotland Convenor (elected seperately by LYS) @SophieBridger

  • So Liberal Youth have Chairs for the West and East Midlands but nothing for London, Yorkshire or the East of England?

    Thanks James, I’ve added Jade and Sophie now.

  • Really looking forward to working with party officers, members, and activists to get some useful work and support done – the fight to survive and grow in 2015 may not have much to do with a students and u25s SAO, but where we can help I’m all ears.

  • Seems odd to have an East and West Midlands region if you are putting together all of the South East (minus London) and everything from the Humber to the Tees.

  • I’m confused. Why is there a Regional Chair for Scottish Highlands, one for Scottish Lowlands, and another for Liberal Youth Scotland?

  • @Keith: The Liberal Democrats are a Federal Party. Regions and nations are distinct things.
