Lib Dems suspend their London mayoral selection for a year..cos not enough approved candidates. Boris n Ken must be pleasedRoughly translated:
No credible "stop Lembit" candidate has come forward and the Liberal Democrats are scared he'll get the nominationIt's also a blow for Duwayne Brooks, a councillor in Lewisham who has emerged as the only other name in contention for the nomination. I guess he's just not big enough to be trusted to stop Lembit Öpik.
So the Liberal Democrat leadership has now got an extra year to sort this out - could they possibly be hoping that by then there will be a former minister in contention?
