One of my favourite things about being a Federal Conference representative is that big thick envelope of manifestos and ballot papers which arrives at the time of internal party elections. I haven't been a rep for the past few years and I really miss my chance to vote. I used to take it very seriously. There is nothing like spending half an hour deciding between your 12th and 13th preferences.
Anyway, ballot papers have been despatched to Conference reps and many of you will be spending time this weekend poring over the manifesto booklets. I think that it might be worth waiting a while.
Why? Because of this tweet by Councillor Chris White:
Special Lib Dem Federal Policy Committee to discuss tuition fees with Vince on 25 October
If this issue is at all important to you, you might want to contact candidates after that meeting to find out how they voted on it. You have plenty time as the ballots don't have to be back until 10th November. Just a suggestion.
