Thanks, Toby - I've posted a response over at your blog.

I don't disagree with you: I think it could be great to have a non-Parliamentarian.

But they would need to surmount two obstacles: 1) having enough of a profile to win, and 2) having the time to do it, unless they're already pretty much full-time as (say) a councillor.

If they can climb those, they may well be the ideal choice!

Should be Jenny Willott. In this age of image (which none of us can get away from, I'm afraid) someone eloquent and good-looking like Jenny Willott in a prominent position would do the party a world of good...
