Lib Dem Leadership Hustings in Newcastle
The Old Assembly Rooms in Newcastle were packed out on Saturday evening for the Lib Dem leadership hustings meeting. Two candidates are in the running - Jo Swinson and Ed Davey. I will be happy with either though I am backing Ed Davey. Both spoke well at the meeting which I reckon must be in sharp contrast to Labour and Conservative meetings where blind panic and blood on the floor are common features.
Gateshead members Vicky Anderson and Leanne Brand are backing Jo.

Me and Ed.
Ballot papers will be circulated shortly and the winner will be declared on 23rd July.
