TIM FARRON ELECTED LEADER OF LIBERAL DEMOCRATS

Both Tim Farron and Norman Lamb ran distinctively liberal, strong campaigns that spoke to party members across the UK. At numerous hustings and meetings with members, including at the Royal Station Hotel in Newcastle they spoke of their liberal values, the direction they think we should go, and how to best rebuild the party over the coming months and years.

The final result was Tim Farron 56.5%, Norman Lamb 43.5%

Tim, who was educated at Newcastle University, has declared that one of his main aims is to help local Liberal Democrats regain control of Newcastle City Council.
