Paddy – some Liberal Democrat reflections…

But whilst the political world is paying tribute, the loss is more acute to the family that is the Liberal Democrats. Here are some of the reactions from Twitter. For those of our readers who didn’t know Paddy as well, or for as long, perhaps these will give you a flavour of the man…

It turns out that so many people had pictures of themselves with Paddy…

And the stories…

Thanks for the memories, Paddy…

  • I was lucky to work with Paddy for ten years or so (from 89 until he became commissioner to Bosnia). He was the first UK politician to visit Hong Kong (where I lived at the time) after Tiananmen Square in 1989. His correct, principled and brave policy on the UK’s responsibilities to Hong Kong and to its many millions of British passprt holders (that’s real patriotism, not the small minded xenophobia of today’s politicians) made me proud to be the member of a party with such a leader. Decent, generous, great energy and an instinctive liberal. The world is a poorer place this morning.
