Quote:
The Liberal Democrats are preparing to announce whether Tim Farron or Norman Lamb will be the party's new leader.

Voting closed on Thursday afternoon in the race to replace Nick Clegg, who resigned after a disastrous general election that left the Lib Dems with just eight MPs.

The winner, who will be announced on social media, is expected to address a party rally later in the evening.

Mr Farron, the former party president, is the bookmakers' favourite.

All a bit academic really.

The LibDem's will remain electorally 'out in the cold' for many years to come. The wilderness years.

They really should disband. They have no point.

While we're at it, maybe they should join up with the other shower but rename it of course, as they debase the word 'labour'.

Tim Farran

Always seemed a decent person when I've seen him on TV. But who knows. He's extremely well liked tho' and AFAIK consistent with his views.

They're still just a bunch of nemos.
