Lib Dem councillors say Ming must go

OK, so this probably (definitely) will be my last post for a day or two, but I simply couldn't resist. This morning Broadcasting House on Radio 4 did a feature on the Liberal Democrats and there terrible scandal ridden year. During the feature a number of Liberal Democrat councillors were asked about how they would feel when Gordon Brown came along and all anyone talked about was Brown/Cameron.

The response was certainly interesting, the general consensus was that Ming Campbell was not up to the job and would need to be replaced before the next General Election else it would not play out very well for the Lib Dems. So, that's rumblings from Lib Dems about the ability of their leader at Christmas. What is it they say about history? If the noise for a snap election next October grows, might we have yet another leadership contest?

"If the noise for a snap election next October grows, might we have yet another leadership contest? "

or maybe the opposite. Ming was among the first to start to hype a October 2007 GE. I wonder if he did it as a "well, there can be a GE soon, you can't ditch me now, cause there can be no time" tactic

Ming seems to have few friends in Hampshire. Romsey's Sandra Gidley (who played a leading role in displacing Kennedy)reportedly wants Campbell out while Chris Huhne in neighbouring Eastleigh still harbours ambitions for the top job (well third from top job by dint of being a Lib-Dem) in British politics.
Best wishes for 2007 Dizzy.
