Mr Lamb, current health minister in the coalition government, was formally re-adopted to stand for the party last night (Friday) by the North Norfolk Liberal Democrats Group at Merchants’ Place, Cromer.

Mr Lamb said: “I’m thrilled to be reselected. It was a great honour. It means a lot to me. I take nothing for granted and work on the basis I have to earn every vote I get.”

He first stood for parliament in north Norfolk in 1992 and has been MP for the area since 2001 for the Liberal Democrats.

The general election will be held next year.

  • Double Bill - what has the poll tax got to do with your 'bedroom tax'? Nothing. But the poll tax was actually the best idea ever. You want to vote, then pay for it. Why as a high earning, high PAYING tax payer, should I get the same voting rights as somebody like yourself who just claims? You talk about going away from the main topic, yet it was you who did that! You don't seem to have any clue what you want to say or what you're talking about!

  • Have they any members left now? Or is it just closet Tories remaining?

  • So how many of his political friends do you think Norman will be sitting with in 2015? The Lib Dems are finished.

  • Norman does a good job for exactly who? he's the minister for health! North Norfolk is sadly lacking any semblance of an efficient health service with a failing ambulance service and long waits to see a doctor for starters. Norman is for Norman, take out a camera and you can guarantee he will be there otherwise forget it, he's just a liberal (tory) party poodle.

  • Ah Jeffrey you have me down as a lib dem supporter then ?, no sorry, I "don't do" political parties, I "do" Norfolk and North Norfolk in particular, and there is no candidate that has been put up yet by any of the other parties than will beat Norman.But good to see that you accept that he will be in parliament in 2015. Shame I was looking forward to taking your £100.

  • It's telling when people like 'Double Bill' purposefully mis-name something like the 'bedroom tax'. If you're claiming money, you're not paying tax, so it's not a tax. And another clue for you Bill, 2nd home owners don't get a 2nd vote! I'll be voting for anybody who talks about sea defences as long as his name isn't Norman.

  • So which bit of his pledge breaking makes him an able man? The promise to vote against a tuition fee rise, or the promise to keep the Tories out? The man gave away his principles for a ministerial car.

  • we are going away from the main topic but second home owners don't get a second vote but they can decide where they want to vote! and as for the bedroom tax its no different to maggie and her poll tax. if the government fails to sell the policy correctly it is no fault of the public for defining it as something else.

  • you said i was using the wrong name when i mentioned the "bedroom tax" ! even you refer to the "poll tax" as just that, and not what the government of the day proposed which was the "community charge" ! jeff bridges you are showing ukip for who they are if you think it is acceptable to hit disabled people and carers the way the bedroom tax does.

  • Vote for change people. Forget the LibLabCon trick. Unless you're like Double Bill, then just vote for the person who will give you the most in benefits because after all, everything is free.

  • he can kiss goodbye to his big majority that is for sure. the second home owners here might lap up his anti-poor and anti-nhs tory agenda but many others will not be fooled. even this week the lib dems are saying they will not support the bedroom tax in the future but were instrumental to it being put in place!

  • Theres £100 here that says Norman Lamb will win North Norfolk in 2015, any takers, Jeffrey ? Cameron ?. For all your political agendas the "normal" people of this constituency are more than happy with the job he does, but keep stirring maybe Happisburgh Harry will pop up and support you.

  • Excellent news! It's only right & proper that the electorate should have the chance to hold this Tory-coIIaborator accountable for his crimes against the people of this land.
