Liberal Democrats Leadership Election – United Kingdom – 2007

Prime Minister Forever – British Version

Author: Treasurer of the PC


“Veteran MP Menzies Campbell, after doubts about his leadership over his age and the party plummeting in opinion polls, felt he had to resign. The Lib Dems felt, now that the threat of a 2007 snap general election had gone, that Menzies would do more damage than good over the next year or two. Only 2 candidates have had enough support to stand for leadership. Chris Huhne, who ran in the previous leadership race, is running against the young, inexperienced Nick Clegg. Some say there is little difference between the two, however Huhne takes a more left-wing approch to Clegg. The Lib Dems hope they will have a TV media-savvy, impressive, charismatic leader who will revitalize their fortunes.”
