The turmoil in the Liberal Democrats continues to grow, following David Cameron's invitation to Liberal Democrats to switch to the real alternative to Labour and help build a modern, mainstream, and progressive opposition. Meanwhile Charles Kennedy has continued to offer the laid-back, uninspired leadership that has been the hallmark of his tenure and the voices of discontent have grown.
The Lib Dems have purported to be the "Real Alternative" to Labour. At the moment they are a squabbling party, with the front bench falling over backwards in public to make it clear they support the leader whilst sharpening the knives, and endless speculation about potential successors. Compared to the Tony Blair & Old Man Brown show that's not an alternative at all!
