    Where are the women?

    Wot, Richard, all those past female leaders of the Liberals, SDP and LibDems? Well, I hate to disappoint you, but…

  • Show some respect for crying out loud:-(

    Tim Hill, I’m glad you agree with my comment. The pictures could have come from a bygone age. Well pre-suffragette. It’s almost Whitechapel (the series). Even Jeremy would likely have been bored to tears.

  • And you wonder why support for Liberalism has collapsed. It was a funeral for heaven’s sake.

    don’t worry, there are some excellent women in line for the future leadership..

    I wish they would start showing themselves to the general public, because the party certainly isn’t overloaded with strong male candidates. It’s no good just looking right to a LibDem audiance, you need someone who will attract votes. Most of the current leading women MP’s are too closely linked to Clegg.
