Support for Nick Clegg and Chris Huhne was very evenly matched – with Clegg winning by just 511 votes.
As it happens, two of the three editors of onlinefocus voted for Clegg, and one voted for Huhne….
The Lib Dem national website has a fresh look tonight:
In his acceptance speech Clegg said “To lead well, a leader needs to listen. That?s why I will hold regular and public Town Hall Meetings.”
Maybe we should invite him to hold a meeting in our district….
You now have a leader who is more conservative than the conservative leader!
how many torys will now perhaps switch to the lib dems?
i will look forwards to seeing Nick Clegg in our area
Clegg was supported by a large majority of Lib Dem MPs. I don’t think they’d want a leader more conservative than Cameron…!
I hope that the Focus team will be happy with their new leader. I preferred him of the two.
