On 1st July, we lost one of our inspirational politicians and former leader of the Liberal Democrats Charles Kennedy.
It was a tragic day with many Liberal Democrats tweeting about their fond memories of Charles and how he has made a difference to so many people. He was not just one of the finest politicians in the UK, he was an inspirational human being and a friend to all Liberal Democrats.
Charles was leader of the Liberal Democrats from 1999 to 2006, and in that time in my opinion was a great leader. He voted against the invasion in Iraq and the party had also won 52 seats in the 2001 general election.
After his resignation as leader of the Liberal Democrats he remained as a back bench MP he still continued to have a great political career such as playing a massive role in the 2014 Scottish independence Better together campaign.
I’m sure everybody will remember Charles Kennedy for the amazing politician that he was and we will carry on his legacy within the Liberal Democrat fightback.
