It is being reported that Eleanor Burnham is likely to join Peter Black in challenging Mike German as leader of the Welsh Lib Dems. in the National Assembly of Wales.
I don't know Mike German, I've never met him and can not therefore speak about his personal qualities. However, on TV I have always found him likeable but also a little too comfortable and a bit too agreeable. For me he seems to lack a an edge that I want to see from a leader. Perhaps this is just the view of someone living in Norfolk and if I loved in Wales I would see it differently ?
The Assembly elections this year showed that the Lib Dems need a new direction and a new drive if they are to move forward and having as wide a choice as possible will really give the party in Wales a proper choice of style and direction.
