The new Chair of the Party’s Federal Finance and Resources Committee is…

Tony Harris.

Tony lives in Newbury and is currently the Treasurer of the local Liberal Democrats. He previously owned a software company and has held a number of charity and non exec positions.

He has been a member of the Party’s policy working groups on social security and tax.

He is about to complete a PhD in Mediaeval Studies and is a rowing umpire and helicopter and aeroplane pilot.

He now takes on the challenge of keeping the party’s finances in order, a job which has been done admirably by Peter Dunphy for the past five years.

The Lib Dem connection to a new film about R D Laing

Additional cast includes Michael Gambon (Gosford Park) and Gabriel Byrne (The Usual Suspects).

The film will be produced by London-based Gizmo Films, in collaboration with GSP studios and Bad Penny Productions, the production company led by Phin Glynn (The Unbeatables).

There’s a Twitter account for the film, too.

And, much as I don’t like linking to the Daily Fail, they have pictures of Tennant in costume.

I’ll certainly be first in the queue when it comes out.

But my interest is sparked not just because I’m a massive Tennant fan. Here’s a quote from the Executive Producer:
