This wasn't a test for me; it was a test for the party after the difficulties of the earlier part of this year. I think we have come through this test.So the Lib Dems are just standing still. Considering the predictions of annihilation that abounded in the days after they stabbed Charles Kennedy in the chest it's hard not to see this as an improvement. But would they have done better with Kennedy in the helm? Was forcing him out really an improvement for the party? Has Campbell really "raised his game"?
We don't see very much of Charles Kennedy in the media these days - when is he going to come back to the Liberal Democrats' frontbench team?
