Sir Alan Beith endorses Tim Farron's leadership bid
A senior Liberal Democrat has today endorsed Tim Farron’s bid to become the next Leader of the party.
Sir Alan Beith was the MP for Berwick-upon-Tweed from 1973 until 2015.
In the past he has been the Deputy Leader of the party.
Tim Farron has the right qualities and skills to be a very effective and inspiring leader of the Liberal Democrats, building on the big increase in party membership since polling day and reinvigorating the activists who worked so hard but saw their efforts overwhelmed by the politics of fear in the last days of the campaign.
