Someone you’ve never heard of appointed Lib Dem leader


A person you have never heard of and wouldn’t remotely recognise if you saw them has been appointed leader of the Liberal Democrats.

This person, whoever they are, replaces Sir Vince Cable, a man who is best known for being the oldest man in the world.

“Someone said it’s a woman called Jo, or possibly a man called Joe,” political correspondent Stephanie Fergal said.

“What we do know is that there is definitely a new leader in place from today, who will presumably have some flagship policies to unveil that absolutely nobody cares about.

“As long as this person can keep saying they’re anti-Brexit for as long as possible, nothing else really matters and the Lib Dems should manage keep their head above the water of electoral irrelevance for the foreseeable future.”

The leadership contest has largely been overshadowed by events in the Conservative Party and Brexit itself, but the public appear intrigued by the appointment.

“Oh yeah I am a big fan of the Lib Dems, although I thought their last album was a bit disappointing,” retail worker Fanny Pringle said.

“I’ll be interested to see which direction they will go in with a new frontman and no doubt I’ll go along to see them live when tickets go on sale.”
