John Stuart Mill wins greatest Liberal poll

Paul Walter has been live blogging the leader's speech.

As part of this he was first with the news of the winner of the Liberal Democrat History Group's vote on the greatest ever Liberal:
11.59 Dead Liberals are in the spotlight. Chris Rennard announces that John Stuart Mill has been voted the greatest Liberal in history. When you think about it, a bit of a no brainer. (But then again a no brainer surely needs no thinking about....I hate this waiting) Well done to the Millster.
Well done, indeed. It was the right result.

I still think that the greatest liberal was John Locke. He laid the ground for all liberals who came later, including Mill.

Mill wasn't a good liberal he didn't want to replace the English people,
