First up, the Lib Dem leadership thing. Ming's resigned, so be it, spilt milk, my opinion had been hardening against him the more crappy media coverage he got, yes, they were OTT, but a decent press team could've turned some of it around, I can only conclude he didn't know what image he wanted to present and thus came across as dithering. As to who to back? No clue at all, soft Huhne, remain to be persuaded. However, my former MP has stated his opinion on a possible candidacy rather clearly:
Someone asked if my question today had been my bid for the leadership of the Lib Dems. My answer to anyone who asks me if I'm going to stand is that I would rather roll around naked in a field of stinging nettles. In other words the answer is a big resounding no.
Not an image I particularly wanted there Adrian.

In other news, our post appears to be coming back to normal. Jennie? Mah T-shirt has arrived.

I likes it. Rather a lot. Fankoo.
Via [livejournal.com profile] tyrell, Cat chases bear up tree, twice. With a picture. Brilliant. I love cats.

Also, [livejournal.com profile] mingcampbell_fd. Looks like the Lib Dems are taking this internet communication thing seriously. They need to chase the Tories a bit, but it's a good start.

Had planned to do stuff today. Honest. But [livejournal.com profile] granjero texted to say the evening was cancelled, so I just turned Total War back on. Oh, and installed Warcraft III. Prince Arthas is so annoying in the early stages...
