Nope, this isn't another candidacy announcement. But it's great to see that so many people are putting their hats into the ring.
According to Lib Dem Voice, the possible candidates so far are:
- Jason Zadrozny, the candidate for Ashfield who came so close to winning in May;
- former MP Susan Kramer;
- blogger (among many other things) Jennie Rigg;
- Tim Farron, MP for Westmoreland and Lonsdale.
And there may well be more to come.
Of course, with the need to find 200 nominating signatures from 20 constituencies in just 2 weeks, it may be that not all of the above make it onto the ballot paper. But I very much hope that we have a decent selection to choose from.
I have no doubt that they will all be at conference lobbying anyone who will listen and I'm going to try to get some words from each of them as to why they are standing and what they hope to achieve if elected.
Watch this space.
