A Short History of the Liberal PartyFrom Kennedy to Clegg: 2005–2010

A Short History of the Liberal Party: From Kennedy to Clegg: 2005–2010 [The five years from the general election of May 2005 to the general election of May 2010 can be divided into three main phases: the first was the final period of Kennedy’s leadership, culminating in his resignation in January 2006 after a growing revolt against him. The second phase can best be called the Campbell interlude, lasting from his election as leader in March 2006 to his abrupt resignation in October 2007 against a background of plunging party support in the opinion polls. The third phase was the leadership of Nick Clegg, who was narrowly elected leader in December 2007 over Chris Huhne.] http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png

Abstract

[The five years from the general election of May 2005 to the general election of May 2010 can be divided into three main phases: the first was the final period of Kennedy’s leadership, culminating in his resignation in January 2006 after a growing revolt against him. The second phase can best be called the Campbell interlude, lasting from his election as leader in March 2006 to his abrupt resignation in October 2007 against a background of plunging party support in the opinion polls. The third phase was the leadership of Nick Clegg, who was narrowly elected leader in December 2007 over Chris Huhne.]
