The art of celebrity

David Cornock is positively scathing about Lembit's and Sian's 'Sunday of Madness':

Lembit Opik has always strongly defended his right to a private life free from media interest, although most hacks would suggest that right is undermined once a politician sells details about his private life to celebrity magazines.

You can read the salacious stuff elsewhere, although it appears that readers of Hello! magazine will no longer be treated to pictures of Lembit Opik and Sian Lloyd inviting us to share their beautiful home, complete with washing machine from their good friend Richard Dyson.

The last feature on the couple, which may have left some readers feeling their own privacy was being invaded, included most rooms except the bathroom, presumably because readers had seen enough plugs already.

Ms Lloyd shared her latest feelings with readers of the Mail on Sunday. The star of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here, the celebrity edition of Who Wants to be a Millionaire, and the celebrity special of the Weakest Link said of Mr Opik: "He's fond of soundbites and celebrity."

The past compere of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations' annual Excellence Awards said of Mr Opik's friendship with one of the Cheeky Girls: "They're really not part of my culture.

"I don't do the sort of things they'll do - turning up for the opening of an envelope."

The host of the Institute of Videography awards (2004) added: "But maybe Lembit really gets off on that."

Anybody would think that he did not approve. Is it me that he is referring to as auctioning off signed copies of 'Hello' magazine?
This man is leader of the Welsh Liberal Democrats??

Where all the great liberals gone?

Well it seems they are either dead or in the House of Lords
