Liberal Democrat leader resigns

With little prospect of a General Election before 2009, if then, it makes sense for Sir Menzies Campbell to step down as leader of the Liberal Democrats now rather than later. That won’t stop questions being asked about whether the jump came when he was about to be pushed.. And with Lembit Opik having already declared an interest in a different post.. candidates for the leadership position have yet to break cover. The resignation was announced by the Liberal Democrat party President Simon Hughes and deputy leader, Vince Cable. Adds Idle chatter, on Saturday, from a Norfolk blogger. And Menzies Campbell’s resignation letter. Another addition. Despite not being able to view the Flash movie involved, I’ve been recommended to add Matt Buck’s Hack Cartoon for Channel 4 News.
