Two more Liberal Democrats appointed to government posts

The Number 10 website has what appears to be the complete listing of the people in the new government. Two more Liberal Democrats names have appeared on it.

Baroness Northover and Lord Wallace of Saltaire - that's Lindsay Northover and William Wallace to those of us who have been in the party for a while - have been included among the Baronesses and Lords in Waiting.

It may sound Ruritanian, but they are just whips in the Lords.

Trivial fact: William Wallace's father-in-law Edward Rushworth fought the Harborough constituency for the Liberal Party at three general elections - 1955, 1959 and 1964. You learn things like that if you have a drink with Michael Steed at conference.

Still no appointment of Minister of State in the Lords for several depts.
