Independent: Charles Kennedy has declined to rule out a return as Liberal Democrat leader, despite dismissing speculation surrounding "a plot" against his successor.

Guardian: The former Liberal Democrat leader Charles Kennedy has denied reports that he hopes to challenge his successor for his old job.

Telegraph: One senior Lib Dem MP privately hailed Mr Kennedy yesterday as still "the most popular leader we have had" and said he would be odds-on to beat any future rival - including the so-called party golden boy Nick Clegg. "He would beat anybody in the party if such a contest arose," the MP said.

Are the media never happy unless at least one of the main political parties are in the process of replacing their leader?
