The Curse of Opik

Mark 'Cheery Oats' Oaten has withdrawn from the race for Lib Dem leader.

Announcing his withdrawal, he added: "I wanted to stand because I felt it was very important to have a contest." But support among party members had not been "matched by my colleagues in Parliament, apart from the very loyal support I've had from Lembit Opik".

Awwwww. Lembs was running Charlie Kennedy's campaign when he thought he still had a chance and then he switched to Cheery. If Tony Blair was wise he'd persuade Gordon Brown to sign up Lembit 'The sky is falling' Opik to his team.
