Going Tonight?

The LibDems over at Political Betting are now talking about Charlie quitting tonight. Norman Lamb has now joined Andrew George in announcing his imminent resignation if Charlie doesn't go. And up to twenty of them are apparently about to do the same.

Seems unlikely he'll go tonight, but an announcement on Monday looks increasingly probable. At which point, Ming et al will scramble to come to the aid of the party.

Makes the Tory contest look like a paragon of propriety and good order.

Davey and Teather (!) have emerged as the new ringleaders.

Nick Robinson has confirmed that Kennedy will resign at 3pm today. He has portrayed the forthcoming contest as a two-horse race between Campbell and Hughes, and cast doubt on Oaten's ability to attract enough support to get onto to the membership ballot.

Kennedy's gone and Oaten is pushing for a coronation (presumably of Campbell).

Hughes has refused to endorse the coronation idea in a typically shifty performance on the steps of Liberal Demoprat HQ. Cable has just effectively endorsed Campbell.

Campbell has declared that he will run. Davey and Clegg are getting behind him as well. According to his own blog, John Hemming intends to run as well!

Campbell should have at least had the decency to wait til tomorrow.

Most unseemly.
