Tim revisits Newcastle University
Tim Farron was a visitor to Newcastle University tonight. I was invited to do the photos. I was a postgraduate student there at the same time Tim was an undergraduate and then Union President. I guess for both of us, it was the first time in the Students' Union building in over 20 years. It's changed quite a bit.
The meeting itself was packed, as you can see from the photo above. The daftest question came from a student who was clearly a Conservative who asked that, with economic recovery underway for the past few years, wouldn't voting Lib Dem put that at risk. Tim politely pointed out that the economic recovery was taking place when the Lib Dems were in government. How short the memory of Conservatives can be.
