For some reason I get emails from the Lib Dems, god knows how or why, today from Tim Farron regarding the Chilcot report delay. "key figures like Jack Straw, Gordon Brown and Tony Blair could be getting off lightly thanks to the publication’s delay. They need to be held to account.many people I know joined the Liberal Democrats off the back of the brave stand that my friend Charles Kennedy made over the Iraq war." etc etc... Usually I just tell them to eff off, today my response. ".and the government your propping up didn't support the war did they? Yet you seem to mention only prominent Labour Party members in your statement? Would it be cynical to believe that this delay is as much, if not more in yours and the Tories interest as it is another distraction on the way you have governed and the broken election promises you made last time around?"
Tim Farron makes joke about the sexual misconduct that goes on in the Lib Dems. Doesn't seem wise!
Lib Dems would be prepared to sit out another coalition, MP Tim Farron tells party conference
{Afternoon Democrat president Tim Farron has said Ed Miliband could be a credible Prime Minister – a day after another senior party colleague warned a coalition with the Labour leader could damage the Lib Dems. Speaking at fringe event at the party's conference in Glasgow, Mr Farron warned his party not to "personalise" its 2015 general election campaign against Mr Miliband. He acknowledged that many people could not picture the Labour leader in Downing Street, but added: "Anybody can be Prime Ministerial, once they become Prime Minister." His comments come after care minister Norman Lamb warned it would be dangerous for the Lib Dems to go into coalition with Labour, saying: "I’m afraid I don’t see Ed Miliband as a Prime Minister." Mr Lamb is seen as a potential leadership candidate alongside Mr Farron. Mr Farron also offered an autopsy of Liberal Democrats mistakes in government, arguing that the party should have "died in a ditch" on the tuition fees vote and should be acting "as if we are on 35%" ...

I know what the Lib Dems are planning.They're waiting to go back into opposition after 2015, elect Tim Farron the fake Leftie as leader, and shift toward the Left as they did before 2010. It won't work. People know that the "Left-Wing" 2010 Lib Dems were nothing short of fakes, as they were willing to go into coalition with a very Right-Wing Tory Party and abandon all of their principles. They might regain some support...but it will take them several years to recover to the kind of level they used to be at. Northern Cities and the Midlands have pretty much been swept clear of Lib Dem Councillors in the last few years. Building that up again will take them a lot of time.
I don't agree with Nigel on much, but on the subject of Nick not being party leader of the by the next election i cannot agree more. What seemed like a low level rebellion from party members after the European and local elections is now obviously a full scale mutiny. Lord Oakeshott obviously set about getting those damaging polls with Nick Clegg's future in mind and i can't believe he didn't have help from within and i also can't believe Vince Cable is not part of this either. I wouldn't be surprised if Nick Clegg is gone as leader by the end of this week, maybe next and then what? The Lib Dems will then have to quickly choose a leader - maybe Danny Alexander, or Tim Farron, or maybe Vince Cable (although he's damaged goods at this point) and they will limp to the next election hoping to keep a few seats in traditionally strong areas and then be potential power brokers again in an hung parliament. Tony Blair is kind of right in why the Lib Dems have been battered at the polls but i think its simpler than ...
Agree. My worry is that Lib Dems might replace him with Vince Cable or Tim Farron. That could help their ratings & help the Tories.
Nick Clegg will lead Lib-Dems forever. Guess that's a dent to Tim Farron's leadership ambitions

I received this message last week after contacting ex-members of the Liberal Democrats European Group. The woman (Mary) deserves a medal! "Dear Ian Thanks for this invitation. I let my LDEG membership lapse because I have stopped coming to conference and so can't attend meetings. The other reason was that for over a year my cheque renewing my subscription went uncleared and I eventually wrote it off. I find conference hard work physically - I'm in my 80s and have a mechanically dicky hip. I just can't manage the rushing about from fringe to fringe. For the same reason, I have given up the foot-slogging part of local Lib Dem activities. (I'm lucky to live in a Lib Dem stronghold - my MP is Tim Farron and we run the district council.) But this isn't for lack of interest in Europe. I have recently taken over as chairman (previously secretary & treasurer) of Forward in Europe, an independent body set up in 1995 by myself and others who had worked in Europe, which is also affiliated to the European Movem ...
Liberal Democrat MP John Pugh has been criticised for voting against the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill – as both Lib Dem deputy leader Simon Hughes, party president Tim Farron and Health Minister Norman Lamb abstained in this week’s vote.
Highlights of conference for me was meeting Tim Farron as meeting Tim was a real confidence boost. Turns out he has four children as well and we spoke about family life and he gave me some really useful tips on managing everything better and what to expect being a MP. We also discussed cockroaches and speaking to the media! Then I had an amazing discussion with Vince Cable and went into depth talking about Smith, Keynes and Hayek (Obviously Vince is a Keynesian) as he refuted Hayek totally. Had a delightful debate with Simon Hughes and Southwark Lib Dems on Land Value Tax over a few drinks and had a fantastic bit of noodles with Graham Neale on the seafront. The Training sessions were absolutely awesome. Some maybe could be run better but in all, I definitely feel that I have walked out a stronger and more confident individual. The best moments for me was meeting members from the Alliance as it was really good to finally put faces to names and great to see how better looking you all are in person ha ha! I ...
