Online presidential hustings this week: send in your questions

This Wednesday the two candidates for Liberal Democrat President will take part in the official Federal online hustings at party headquarters in Cowley Street, London.

Susan Kramer and Tim Farron will answer questions which have been submitted online, and a video of the event will be posted afterwards on YouTube for all party members to refer to.

I’ll be chairing the hustings, so please submit your questions via email to [email protected] or in the comments thread below by 5pm Wednesday.

If you’d like to attend in person, a limited number of places are available. It’s on Wednesday 20 October at 7pm. Please contact Johnny LeVan-Gilroy at [email protected] to register.

Otherwise keep an eye on Lib Dem Voice for a link to the video afterwards.

    Thanks Sandra – it’s Wednesday. Now corrected.

  • Question:
    What practical steps would they make to ensure that local activists and councillors are kept up to date on libdem achievements (e.g. fulfilled manifesto commitments) in government. We aren’t getting much good news out of the press!

    Are our Parliamentarians correct to pursue coalition policies such as the changes to univeristy funding which are clearly at complete odds with party policy agreed at conferences? If yes, where does this leave our democratic policy system and if no, how can we be part of an affective coalition?

  • CLIMATE CHANGE HAS GONE AWAY FOR BRITAIN?
    Why has there been no green agenda in the economic solutions being put forward by the coalition in the CUTS budget?
    No mention of a CARBON TAX?
    No mention of increased spending on reseach and development in green areas?
    No mention of changing the mindset of all to respect and preserve natural resources and biodiversity for future generations ?
    Forgotten for the next 4 years at least ?

  • As I understand it, the role of party president is to inspire the party faithfull, and in the current complicated times we need that leadership.

    I’m not convinced that Susan’s track record of running away (London mayoral election, Richmond parliamentary election) is the message we need to be giving to our activists?

    We need to breed sucess and sell lib dem values and lib dem achievments.
