There does some seem to be some reluctance to back the two women that happen to be next on the list namely, the former Assembly Member Eleanor Burnham and Eluned Parrot a former Parliamentary candidate for the party. This reticence is baffling. Surely if the Liberal Democrats had any doubts about either they should never have endorsed them as party candidates. But that, as they say, is up to the internal machinations of the party.
Let the Returning Officers do their job and let democracy take it’s course. It may be bad luck to the two, but like Benn they'll just have to hang around awhile.
