Sir Menzies Campbell resigns as Liberal Democrat leader!

Well, you could knock me down with a feather. It looks like the Liberal Democrats have knifed another leader Ming Campbell, the second time in this parliament.

Now don't get me wrong, I like to see a bit of infighting in Labour and the Liberal Democrats, but if anyone thinks this is going to help them they are much mistaken. Unless your party is led by a psychologically flawed dithering Stalinist control freak* perhaps you should ask not what your leader can do for you, but what you can do for your leader.

Still, I'll sit back and watch the fireworks, munching popcorn.

The BBC has this.

* Come on, if you are in that party, you know who you are :)

how many leaders will they have before the next election?

I would not be surprised if Nick Clegg ends up being the new leader. This would be good news for Labour and very bad news for Cameron's Conservatives.

CityUnslicker, Who knows. What if their next one does not work out?

Mike, that seems to be the view of the left, along with the historic realignment of the left and the end of the Conservative party. Frequently predicted yet it has not happened. I wonder why?
