Give that man a Blue Peter badge

If one of the qualifications to be Party President is intimate knowledge of Blue Peter then Lembit will win hands down:

Richard Younger-Ross (Teignbridge) (LD): ... Blue Peter was important to me as a child ... I remember those wonderful moments with the elephant, the gentleman sniffing, John Noakes, the dogs — what were their names?

Lembit Opik: The Blue Peter dogs since the inception of the programme were called Petra, Patch, Shep, Goldie, Bonnie, Mabel and Lucy. There was also a dog called Meg, but it was not an official Blue Peter dog. It belonged to Matt Baker and frequently appeared on the show, so including that one, there were eight dogs.

Mr. Deputy Speaker (Sir Alan Hazelhurst): Order. That is a detail which could possibly be left for Committee.

Hat Tip: Rob Newman
Thank you for reminding me - again - why I've voted for Ros !!
Love him or hate him, you're writing about him, and maybe that's the key. There's a distinct lack of personalities in politics at the moment, but Lembit is amongst the ones that the public instantly recognise. Perhaps the whole Cheeky relationship will remind him what his true goals are in life, and will refocus him on politics. I still think he's a better bet than Ros, who will vanish into the background.
