Here’s a public post on Facebook from long-standing party activist and former Parliamentary candidate Ed Fordham with a message for Nick Clegg:
Please please do not let the Liberal Democrat dissolution honours be about the men of the past – please consider nominating faces who have a long working future ahead of them, who look like modern Britain and are not rewarded for losing. The Upper House must be used as a functional base for liberalism and we need young women and men who can lead with energy, not relax into retirement after 10, 20,30 years of being an MP.
Please share if you agree and if you do I will copy you in on the public letter I am preparing for publication (and therefore ask you to be a signatory of it).
Ed is absolutely right.
