The party’s poor performance in December 2019 saw them drop to just 11 MPs in the Commons, with leader Jo Swinson losing her own seat in East Dunbartonshire. The former Watford mayor also criticised the party’s insistence that Ms Swinson could become Prime Minister. Ms Swinson billed herself as a contender for the premiership during the party election launch in November, an assertion which Baroness Thornhill said “appeared unrealistic to the wider public”. The review polled 20,000 members of the party, and Baroness Thornhill said it was obvious that many Lib Dems were “gutted and angry” with the election performance. The report heavily criticised the party’s internal machine, saying our “governance structures are a mess and don’t do what they are supposed to”. Baroness Thornhill also noted that decision making during the general election was “unclear”.
