I was extremely pleased that my choice for the new leader of the Liberal Democrats, Nick Clegg was elected, albeit by a small majority. Today Nick has revealed his Shadow Cabinet team to carry the party’s message throughout the country. The reshuffle sees promotions for many of the party’s talented younger MPs and a focus on issues that matter to people, such as delivering high quality public services, inequality, families and taking power back from Whitehall.

The Shadow Cabinet has also been grouped into teams such as Economy and Business; Home Affairs; and Public Services with an MP taking the lead in each area. Key appointments include Chris Huhne as Shadow Home Secretary and Ed Davey as Shadow Foreign Secretary. Nick said he was hugely excited by the new team because it demonstrates the vast talent in the Liberal Democrat party.
