Ming Campbell: the final countdown

By common consent, Ming Campbell made rather a hash of PMQs this week. People in his own party are briefing against him.

Of course, the Lib Dem leader has been seeking to defend himself:

'If you'll forgive my immodesty I didn't become an Olympic athlete or a practising QC or win a seat from fourth place that hadn't been Liberal for 50 years without being able to meet challenges.'

He's only had three months in the job, so I suppose he qualifies for the benefit of the doubt a little while longer yet.

But don't be surprised if he steps down on 'health grounds' before the end of the year.

On, and looking at the photos, I can't help noticing that he has even less hair than Mark Oaten.
