NLC Hustings for Lib Dem LeaderRosemarie and Nick Hollinghurst and Patrick Fisher from West Herts Local Party attended the hustings last night for the choice of the next Liberal Democrat Leader

The Candidates for the post of Leader were Jo Swinson MP and Ed Davey MP.

The event was held in the Lloyd George Room of the National Liberal Club and was presided over by Baroness Bowles of Berkhamsted.

The members present were very conscious that they were probably selecting the next-but-one Prime Minister of the United Kingdom

Both candidates left no-one in any doubt that this was indeed their ambitions, for themselves, the party and the country.

Right across the UK, the Liberal Democrats are now working hard to ensure that either Ed Davey or Jo Swinson does in fact become our next-but-one Prime Minister.

Recent polls indicate that if Boris Johnson becomes PM and we leave the EU, then in any subsequent general election the Liberal Democratss will top the poll with 30% or more.

With a vote share of that magnitude West Herts Liberal Democrats would be expected to win the South West Herts Parliamentary seat.
