Sir Vince Cable next Lib Dem leader? Veteran MP favourite after throwing hat into ring

20 Jun

Political experts see veteran Sir Vince as the obvious successor to Tim Farron. 

Jo Swinson has announced that she will run for deputy leader, not leader. 

In Mr Farron’s resignation to statement to staff he said: “From the very first day of my leadership, I have faced questions about my Christian faith. 

“I’ve tried to answer with grace and patience.  Sometimes my answers could have been wiser.  At the start of this election, I found myself under scrutiny again – asked about matters to do with my faith. 

“I felt guilty that this focus was distracting attention from our campaign, obscuring our message.”
