What My Vote Achieved

…in the Lib Dem internal elections (of course!).
I won’t bore you with a full rundown of where all my prefs went, but my first prefs were allocated as follows:
Fed. Executive: Caron Lindsay

Fed. Policy Comm.: Richard Flowers

Fed. Conference Comm.: Zoe O’Connell

International Relations Comm.: Nasser Butt

ELDR Delegation: Aliss Moss


And here is what my votes ended up supporting:


Fed. Executive: Caron Lindsay elected

Fed. Policy Comm.: Gareth Epps elected

Fed. Conference Comm.: Justine McGuinness elected

International Relations Comm.: Gordon Lishman elected

ELDR Delegation: Aliss Moss elected


So, not quite what I most wanted, but thanks to STV I can point to someone on each of the committees, and say “I helped put them there.”

Which is pretty nifty.

    Thank you so much for your support. I really appreciate it so much. I’m thrilled to have been elected – please keep in touch over the next two years and tell me what you think about things.

      You’re welcome, and don’t worry, I’m sure you’ll hear from me!

    It’s interesting to see that pretty much everyone I respect in the party put Caron, Richard and Zoe as their first preferences for those roles (and those would also have been my choices had I been eligible to vote). If only we could find some way to let the party as a whole know how good those people are.
