East Midlands Press Officer Mathew Hulbert called for Nick Clegg to be replaced as leader in a BBC interview today. His view will be no surprise to anyone who has ever read what he writes on Liberal Democrat Voice in the comments threads.]
However, East Midlands Regional Chair Tony Rogers was not, shall we say, best pleased with his colleague. He told me:
"I am very disappointed to hear that the East Midlands Press Officer has made a statment attacking Nick Clegg. I hope Mathew made it clear that this was his own personal opinion and is not the view of the East Midlands region.
We Liberal Democrats are so pleased that out of the three party leaders, Nick Clegg is ours."
Rogers added that he was very impressed with Tim Farron as President.
