Campaigners say LibDem’s new leader must appeal to a more diverse audience than Farron

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that following the resignation of the perpetually clean-shaven Tim Farron as LibDem leader the party needs to appeal to a more diverse image than smooth faced suit wearers.

The LibDem tradition is one of hirsuteness from the mutton chops sideburns of Gladstone to the moustache of Lloyd George. However given that there is no hirsute contender diversity would certainly be boosted by having a woman as leader, in this case Jo Swinson

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, these days image matters as much as words. Tim Farron didn’t really say ‘LibDem’ in terms of appearance. It’s time for a more diverse image.
