Local Lib Dem (and fellow-Northerner) Nick Perry has given formal backing to Tim Farron’s campaign to become the next Leader of the Liberal Democrats.

Farron was re-elected at the recent general election for a third straight term as MP for the Cumbria constituency of Westmorland & Lonsdale.

He has already received significant endorsements from the leaders of Scottish and Welsh Liberal Democrats, many former MPs and, (in the Guardian recently) over a hundred of the party’s parliamentary candidates who stood at the general election (of which Nick was one).

Commenting, Nick said: “I have worked closely with Tim Farron for many years now – particularly on the crucial issue of fishing quotas. Tim is a proven campaigner and outstanding communicator.  His is the distinctive, liberal voice that our party needs and that is why I have formally nominated him to be our next leader.  I have urged members here to do the same.”

Tim Farron added: “Nick has been a fantastic Lib Dem champion for Hastings & Rye. I have seen how hard he works for constituents and I am so grateful to have his backing for my campaign.”
