Didn't realise it wasn't until the 1970s that the party names were put on, Wild that!

Why is resigning the whip even a thing? I vote Labour. If my MP went over to the Tories after I voted for Labour, I would be FUUUUMING. It is anti democratic.


Well, well - we've finally found something to agree on! smile.gif

The system still works on the assumption that you vote for a candidate, not a party. I think it was only in the 1970s that the party names were added to the ballot paper.


That does have the advantage of voters having to look up *something* about a candidate before voting.

I'd vote for a dead cat over a Tory. This whole voting for an MP nonsense is just that - nonsense. We are voting for the party.


Which is unfortunately why donkeys wearing the right colour rosette keep getting elected. sad.gif To counter this we *need* STV!

Vince Cable has announced that, unless there is a general election, he will step down as leader in May.

I'm surprised that she would allow him to do that whilst he is resigning. What does Philip think?

Hilarious double entendres aside, who do the Lib Dems have in their narrow pool of 9 other potentials (excluding Tim Farron & that guy who resigned the whip) who could realistically take over and help breathe new life into the party? I'm assuming that Jo Swinson would be the logical option, but given she ruled out the possibility when Vince Cable was elected, she may not put her hat into the ring again.

Assuming there isnít a candidate from outside parliament, I think the main contenders would be Jo Swinson and Layla Moran.

Former Liberal Democrat leader Lord Steel has been suspended from the party after admitting that he knew Cyril Smith was a sexual abuser as far back as 1979, when he was leader of the Liberal Party, but did nothing.

Errr not quite correct. He SUSPECTED Smith was guilty of abuse dating back to Smith's pre-Labour Party career, but the police didn't pursue the case. Can one throw someone out of a political party over unproven accusations? Now, if Steele is found to have quashed evidence that could have led to a prosecution then that is an entirely different kettle of fish.
