Lib Dem Leadership Contest – It’s a Two Horse Race

So the knives are out for Ming – as if they were ever put away for long. The latest ICM poll has shown a slight improvement, though, with the Libs bouncing back to 14% from the 11%-ish that have been rating recently. This means that, according to Electoral Calculus, the Lib Dems will win two seats in a General Election.

Sadly, neither of them are Ming’s. Instead, the leadership of the Lib Dem parliamentary party will be a showdown between Charlie Kennedy (Ross, Skye and Lochaber) and John Thurso (Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross). It is, as the Libs might say, a two horse race.

    well ming’s gone.

    i was speculating on this back on my blog (see posting ‘end of the ming dynasty’ on 22 sept) following the party conf when it seemed obvious that he was a dead man walking. at last the young(ish) Lib Dem turks show their teeth.
