Lorely Burt elected chair of Lib Dem Parliamentary party

Congratulations to Lorely Burt on being elected chair of the Liberal Democrat Parliamentary party.

Reproducing the party press release, Lib Dem Voice reports that she defeated Andrew George and John Thurso to win the post. The press release does not reproduce the voting figures.

One bonus for Lorely is that the press will consistently call her "the chair of the Liberal Democrats" even though there is no such post.
