Eleanor Burnham and Janet Ryder not in the next Assembly? How on earth is north Wales going to cope losing these political heavyweights??

That's assuming anyone will vote Lib Dem in the North at the next election...

There are very few LD members in North Wales if only 250 odd voted in the hustings and that was postal votes. If we assume that 80% voted that means that LD membership in N Wales is less than 350, oh dear.

Actually Eleanor only became an AM in 2001, when Christine Humphreys stepped down as N Wales Lib Dem AM due to illness.
Quality control wasn't in it.

My apologies, I forgot about Christine Humphreys.
