Lembit saved from the pot

“Lembit has large claws which are very strong so I do my best to avoid them as they can have your wrist or fingers off easily. You have to be very careful handling them and I try not to pick them up!”

Not the Lib Dem MP for Montgomery, you booby. He is talking about a huge lobster that has survived in British waters for 40 years.

According to WalesOnline, the two-foot long crustacean was about to be shipped to Spain and a seafood restaurant. But it has been rescued by the charity Sea Trust.

Relieved to learn that Mr Opik isn't about to be plunged into boiling water!

He has been vocal and active in supporting the human rights of the sadly oppressed Baha'i community in Iran - something for which I am very grateful.
