Liberal Democrats and Others
The Liberal Democrats were disappointed to emerge from the 1992 election with only 18 per cent of the vote and 20 seats. They had not made the gains they had hoped for and they had not secured the balance of power that had seemed likely during the campaign. Yet they were also relieved: there had been no wipe-out. The party was united and solvent and content with its leader, Paddy Ashdown. They had a strong and growing base in local government. They continued to flourish as the prime receptacle for those disillusioned with the other parties.
