Simon Hughes elected as Lib Dem deputy leader

Congratulations to Simon Hughes, who was elected as the deputy leader of the party by Liberal Democrat MPs this evening. I cannot find the voting figures online anywhere. Will they be declared? (Later. I am told that Hughes won by 38 votes to 18, with one MP not voting.)

Simon is full of plans for his new role but, as I suggested the other day, he may find that Nick Clegg has no wish to cede that sort of power to him.
