Congratulations to Sam Bowman, Policy Director of the Adam Smith Institute, for winning Lib Dem Voice “Liberal Voice of the Year” award.
Sam was the clear winner taking 52% of the vote, indeed Sam was the clear winner through out every round of the voting (see here) receiving nearly 50% from the off.
The top 3 were
1. Sam Bowman (52%)
2. Malala Yousafzai (28%)
3. Alliance Party of Northern Ireland (20%)
Congratulations to all three. But special congrats to Sam. A very worthy winner who has been positively prolific across 2012, speaking out for liberty across so many areas: immigration, same sex marriage, legalisation of drugs, the surveillance state, minimum alcohol pricing, and much more. Sound on every occasion.
Sam follows in the footsteps of Mark Littlewood (formerly of this parish), Director General of the Institute of Economic Affairs, Liberal Voice of the Year winner 2012.
