apparently, Ed is going to say something today.
Ed who ? Waste of space
I just saw this thread and googled the name as I’d genuinely never heard of him. I will now instantly forget about him.

it's a bit of a Greek tragedy really, the 2023 lib Dem party, if they think Doncaster is going to turn yellow they are probably being a bit too aspirational.

it's a shame as they had a really opportunity during lockdown to provide some real opposition but they fluffed it.

anyway, it's party conference day and he is going to make his first speech as party leader.

I've always known who the lib dem leader is. Until the last few years. Now they make very little impact on me.

I think most people have forgotten the Lib Dems even exist.

Not even useful for a protest vote.
If I'm being generous perhaps it's different at a local level but at a national level yes they seem to have simply disappeared from the conversation.
HaHa, this thread just reminded me of their existence.

They hadn't entered my thoughts for years.

I met the late Charles Kennedy about fifteen years ago and he came across, as a very intelligent man with a sense of humour. I think the Liberal Democrats now are a shadow of what they were. I don't even know what they stand for, although to be fair, that could apply to all the main parties at the moment.
