And so the rally
The rally itself was hosted by the effervescent Tim Farron, MP for Westmoreland and Lonsdale. Tim was his usual funny self and praised Leader Nick Clegg for his fertility amongst other things. After Time came Dorothy Thornhill, re-elected Mayor of Watford. After Dorothy came journalist Henry Porter who has been writing about privacy issues for many years. And finally the Leader who gave a very upbeat speech and described the Labour Party as being in perhaps terminal decline. Maybe, maybe not, but what is certain is that Labour has massive problems and the Lib Dems are placed to capitalise by providing substantive answers rather than blue spin.
