|Susan Kramer||Tim Farron|
|1) Susan will work to keep our party strong, unified, distinctive and try to its core beliefs.||1) Tim is a campaigner with a track record of winning against the odds. He took a safe Tory seat and converted it into the highest Lib Dem vote share on the UK mainland.|
|2) Susan will listen to you, take your views and ideas to the party leadership and get answers.||2) Tim listens to the voice of grassroots members. He is best placed to make sure that the leadership and ministers listen to you.|
|3) Susan will travel up and down the country supporting your local Lib Dem campaigns.||3) Tim is an outstanding communicator with the media and public. He will get across the positive messages about the distinctiveness of the Liberal Democrats.|
That's all a matter of style, I suppose. On substance, Susan Kramer has more (though not a lot more) to say about using the position of President to service the party membership, and Tim Farron is crystal clear that he sees the role as another potential public platform for a senior Lib Dem to use. If I were more active in the party, perhaps I would have a sense of things going wrong that Susan Kramer could fix, but I'm not so I don't; and my ballot goes off with an X in the Farron box.
