#Hastings #Rye Lib Dems parliamentary candidate responds to Tim Farron’s resignation

June 14, 2017

Responding to Tim Farron’s resignation as Leader of the Liberal Democrats, local party chair and recent parliamentary candidate Nick Perry said,

‘As an out and proud member of Tim’s campaign team for the leadership back in 2015 I am sorry to see him resign this afternoon. His tenure as Leader has helped our party to begin to recover from the difficult Coalition years. From his statement, it seems clear that Tim has wanted to put the great cause of Liberalism before any personal ego or ambition.That is a rare thing in politics. I remain a big fan. Our next Leader, and the 12 Lib Dem MPs sent to Parliament on 8 June, have an important job to do. Intelligent, robust and unashamedly pro-European scrutiny of Mrs May is more important than ever.’
