@joepike @joswinson @EdwardJDavey It's not only the choice of Labour leader that will matter but how they start to oppose and their Shadow Cabinet etc. Also how trade deals are going. Important context for LibDem strategy.John Appleby @JohnApplebyLD • 18 Jan 16:07 GMT
NEW: Lib Dems won’t announce their new leader for another SIX MONTHS. 15th July is when the contest to succeed @joswinson will conclude.
This protracted timeline is ostensibly to learn lessons of disastrous #GE19 performance. Will be advantageous to acting leader @EdwardJDavey.
