Well, we all knew that was going to be the case, so I wrote this a few minutes ago, and hit 'publish' when the confirmation came through. Poor Caron Lindsay had to go through the motions of preparing an alternative "Stormin' Norman is leader" post for Lib Dem Voice, just to look even-handed and non-presumptuous.
UPDATE : Here are the full results -
Tim Farron 56.5%
Norman Lamb 43.5%
I find that quite interesting, because even though Farron is clearly the right choice (Lamb simply doesn't have the right personal qualities to get the Lib Dems back into the game), it wasn't an overwhelming victory by any means. This is a result with "DIVIDED PARTY" stamped all over it. The Orange Bookers will be sulking for some time - and then they'll either start plotting, or defect to the Tories.
