Which new Lib Dem MP has “made biggest mark”

The iNews has been looking at some of the 2017 intake of MPs and have identified those who – for good reasons and not so good – have come to prominence.

One of ours gets a well-deserved mention:

Liberal Democrat high command expects great things of Layla Moran, rewarding her for capturing Oxford West and Abingdon by appointing her education spokeswoman. The former teacher and assured TV performer, is already being talked about as a future leader.

Here she is leading a debate on period poverty this week in Westminster.

    The Sunday Politics on BBC1 put up a false choice between competence and compassion.
    Why not vote for those who have both? Sun journalist Newton Dunn said that Tony Blair did in 1997. True, but Vince Cable does now.
    Newton Dunn’s father was a Conservative pro-European who became a Liberal Democrat MEP.

  • Richard, Hear hear! Competent and Compassionate – that’s what Liberal Democrats are, it is what people want, and it is what differentiates us from Labour and The Tories. Let’s make sure that the voters really get to understand this.

    Agree with Richard and Paul .Our biggest problem is getting that message across in a politically unbalanced debate when as the former chair of the social mobility commission indicated the political debate is poles apart.

    Liberal Democrat High Command? What a stupid concept.
