So who will take his place?
Worth names four principal candidates:
- Patricia Hewitt
- Charles Clarke
- Geoff Hoon
- Charles Kennedy
I am sure we would all be pleased to see Charles get the job. If anything, it would solve the problem of what the party should do with him in the UK - a problem the new leader will soon have to face.
Though perhaps the demand that he return to the front bench comes more from the media than from the Lib Dem membership?
Thanks to Devil's Kitchen (not that I read it, you understand).
