Lib Dem leadership campaign
Without breaking any confidences and based in part on newspapers reports as well as other communications it seems clear that there are four potential candidates in the running. Ming Campbell is the favourite. Simon Hughes and Mark Oaten are possible runners. I am not inclinded to stand if both Simon and Mark stand and probably won't stand if there is a contest otherwise, but that depends upon the response from activists next Saturday.
Out of the three I am not yet decided who I would support.
I am gathering volunteers and supporters (please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer) as there will be quite a rush to get nomination papers sorted out.
