Chris Huhne now shorter odds than Simon Hughes

Chris Huhne has now moved into second place in the betting on the Liberal Democrat leadership contest, reports Steve Guy.

Steve concludes:
Given that so many members strongly identify themselves as 'Mingers' or 'Hughesies', we can guess that they won't be giving many second preference votes to each other. The way I see it, Chris is likely to make it through the first count, and make the headlines with all of the second preference votes propelling him through the finish line.

Here's a thought (perish it). Is there any risk that Chris Huhne's name might be mistaken for Geoff Hoon, and should that be a factor in the leadership vote..?
