Jenny versus Lembit

Some interesting speculation in this morning's Western Mail as to who will be appointed as the Liberal Democrats Spokesperson on Welsh Affairs. Rumours are that Cardiff Central MP, Jenny Willott, will replace her old boss Lembit Öpik in this role, despite the fact that Lembit remains the elected Leader of the Welsh Liberal Democrats.

Jenny supported Ming in the leadership contest whilst Lembit declared his support for Mark Oaten and then quietly moved on to back Simon Hughes once Oaten had dropped out. It is perhaps telling that Sir Menzies Campbell was the only one of the three party leadership candidates not to accept a lift in Lembit's plane. He has said that he intends to be bold, but not that bold.
