Ming falls on sword

Posted by davidburbage on October 16, 2007

So, farewell Ming Campbell. I think that it was inevitable given the lousy poll ratings for the Liberal Democrats over the last few months that he was going to be under huge threat.

One Libdem I spoke to today seemed a bit relieved – having said that, I’m not really sure what the attraction of either of the two front runners would be that isn’t available in other parties. Clegg might find himself battling with his own party (to their general detriment) if he steers to the right, and Huhne is not known for being the most charismatic man in England.

I wonder if a dark horse would get anywhere? I suppose this will mean a period of increased meeja coverage for the party, which I will find particularly annoying.
