Tim Farron resigns as Liberal Democrat leader [View all]

That's all I've got at the moment:

Tim Farron, the Liberal Democrat leader, has announced his resignation


Well, except for this:

Lib Dem peer resigns over Farron's views on homosexuality

The Liberal Democratsí home affairs spokesman, Brian Paddick, has resigned from his post, citing concerns about the party leaderís views.

Paddick said he was concerned about the leaderís views on various issues that were highlighted during the campaign. Throughout the election campaign, Tim Farron was dogged by questions over his attitude to homosexuality and abortion, though he has insisted he does not believe gay sex is a sin and has said he is pro-choice.

The Lib Dem peer, formerly the Metropolitan policeís deputy assistant commissioner and the UKís most senior gay police officer, has stood as the partyís mayoral candidate in past elections.
