Thoughts on internal elections

The results from the Liberal Democrat federal internal elections came out this morning, and you can see the results here (for a list of who was elected) and here (for the full voting breakdown). Various people on blogs (see Jennie and Andy, for…

Signal boost: Internal party elections

I mentioned the other day about Jennie Rigg’s plan to gather questions together for candidates in the Liberal Democrats’ internal elections. Unlike when I come up with a grand plan and then neglect to follow through, Jennie’s a woman of action, and not…

It’s internal election time

My, is it really two years since the last set of internal elections in the Liberal Democrats? Obviously yes, because the Lib Dem Twitterverse and blogosphere is at something-that-might-be-a-fever-or-might-be-the-result-of-sitting-too-close-to-the-radiator-pitch about it, but this time we may get more discussion of them because the…

On Lib Dems and leadership

I left a comment last week on Jennie Rigg’s post about potential leaders of the Liberal Democrats that I wanted to expand on. Jennie was looking at the potential candidates for next leader of the Liberal Democrats, and one thing that comes up…

Worth reading 39: Unluck comes in threes

Bored? Then it’s time for some linkage: Colonel Albert Bachmann – Telegraph obituary of a Swiss spy, whose life resembled something from a black comedy about the Cold War. The Lib Dem Leadership Don’t Get It – But I Do – Jennie explains…

Worth Reading 5: Starred

And when you look into the internet, the internet looks also into you: Tunisia: The uprising has a hashtag – Did you know there’s an uprising against the government of Tunisia underway? Neither did I, but this article’s a helpful introduction to the…

And sometimes elections aren’t Rigged

So, in the end, it seems that just two weeks is not enough time to organise a grassroots campaign for the Party Presidency, though Jennie gave it a damn good go. Still, there’s two years until the next contest, which is a lot…
