Viv Bingham 1932-2012

Viv Bingham was one of the first people I met at Liberal Assembly and he always had time for a chat on the rare occasions I bumped into him - at conferences or the odd by-election. The party will miss his authentic liberal voice - grounded in the non-conformist politics of the English north.

Better tributes than I can manage can be found at Liberal England and Stephen's Liberal Journal.

This report from the Journal of Liberal History of a fringe meeting looking back at the first 1974 election contains contributions from Viv (among others) - but not Jeremy Thorpe who was apparently ignored by the chair!
