More thumbs up for Lembit!
Good grief! Somebody has written a song for Lembit Opik! Mitch Benn has supposedly immortalised our beloved Welsh leader in lyrical terms after hearing his 2003 speech to a Conference fringe in which the MP advocated "blue skies" thinking about how safe drivers could one day be given their own personal speed limits. Mercifully, the Welsh newspapers spare us too many of the lyrics about the man who "looks like a weed" but "lives for speed". Mitch is quoted as describing Lembit as a "soldier of truth, a defender of youth and a potential savour of the earth". Somebody pass me an asteroid!
