Leadership elections

Some good news at last from a Welsh Lib Dem executive.. regardless of your views on who should be the party leader news that this issue will be sorted once and for all in the next eight weeks can only be good for the party.

Mike has led our Assembly group ably for the past 8 years and if he gets the support of the party at large I will be more than happy to see him remain for at least another 4, However two elections of no progress means it is time to look for a new impetus.

The next four years are likely to be challenging and we need to have a leader who can take on the new administration in Cardiff. That means we need a change at the top and I for one hope Mike realises that and steps aside thereby allowing all our AMs the opportunity to consider their positions without having any feelings of a misplaced loyalty to him.
