Kennedy resigns.. who’s next?

He may have bought Gonzo a pint once, but he’s not leader of the Lib Dems anymore.. Charles Kennedy bowed to the inevitable and resigned as the Lib Dem party leader today, despite his previous statement, after his colleagues, excepting Lembit Opik, took turns on just about every current affairs platform to urge him to do just that.. So that’s a new Conservative leader, a soon-to-be new Lib Dem leader [Simon Hughes or Menzies Campbell? – Ed].. and then there’s Tony Blair.. perhaps, even, one of our local parties might feel the need to change the hand on the tiller.. Update Charles Kennedy’s statement here
