AlisonW - The .com test site

This site is currently being redeveloped. Although it will work fine it will continue to look terrible for a while yet. Sorry!

A few days ago I received a request from the Party to respond to an online questionnaire about the whole 'expenses' row, and thoughts on the replacement for Speaker Martin. They will be the subject of a post a little later, however I've just seen an announcement from Cowley Street.


Lord Chris Rennard is resigning as Chief Executive of the Liberal Democrats 'at the end of the Summer'.

Whether it was coincidence or not that the questionnaire included one about the tenability of his position I am very sorry to see him leave. I recall attending his anniversary dinner in Brighton some years back during conference and a more knowledgeable bloke you couldn't hope to meet.
