Don’t ask me why I was happening to browse Wikipedia’s Charlotte Church entry, but I was, and a line leapt out at me:
In 2006 media reported that Church was considering standing for the Presidency of the Liberal Democrats.
Strangely, this doesn’t appear to be attributed, which is against WP’s rules.
I wasn’t aware that Charlotte Church had been a member of the Lib Dems for the requisite period of time. And how has she found the support of 50 conference reps?
But is the lovely Welsh lass the mystery person who applied to get the ballot papers?
I’m on the record as wanting a president who isn’t London-based, or already a Parliamentarian, and we haven’t had a woman for a while… but do we really need another ex-chorister with a reputation for drink problems?
