Reconsider your decision to resign as Leader of the Liberal Democrats

This petition had 126 supporters

Dear Tim,

We wish to thank you for your hard work and inspiration as leader.

We admire your enthusiasm, sense of humour and positive spirit and the tens of thousands of people that you have inspired to join the party. You have led from the front in standing up for refugees, tackling inequality and opposing Brexit and we were proud to be Liberal Democrats contesting the last general election.

No leader can be perfect and doubtless many members will disagree with aspects of your leadership. It is perfectly appropriate for them to call for an election as happened with Nick Clegg. 

However, we find it disturbing that a leader of the Liberal Democrats would resign as a consequence of a campaign of criticism from a minority of the party:  this is against the tradition of our party, which believes in the involvement and participation of all of its members.  We feel that your resignation is unfair to the large body of members who have not been given the opportunity to express their views.

 We therefore call on you to reconsider your resignation and to stand in a leadership election.
