Although I often take risks and gamble I'm not a betting person so I wonder if anyone can help. Has anyone any idea what odds I would have got 6 months ago on the LibDems managing to self-destruct in such a catastrophic manner and in such an extended way? They are disappearing one a week, it would have been less damaging if they'd all stood together on stage and exposed their foibles one at a time rather than dragging it out like this. Who knows what lies ahead? Menzies Campbell admitting to a heroin habit? Chris Huhne revealing that he's undergone gender realignment surgery? It's only three weeks since they managed to push Charles Kennedy into resigning and there must be a large number in the party who wonder about the wisdom of that! This soap opera will change from Wednesday when nominations for the leadership close and then they shift in to full-on electioneering before the announcement of the new leader in early March. I bet we can't wait and I, for one, wouldn't be surprised to see Chantel from Big Brother scooping the leadership and then going on to beat Brown and Cameron in an election in three years time. You heard it here first and when you collect your winnings from Ladbrookes don't forget me! :-)

3 careful considerations:

Nominations have already closed, Nog. WYSIWYG, & I have to admit WYS is not terribly inspiring.

For a minute there, I thought you were talking about Canadian politics.
