If only Lembit Opik had listened

So the rumours were well founded. Lembit Opik is to be one of the contestants in this year's I'm a Celebrity,... Get Me Out of Here.

Has it really come to this?

Two years ago, in the wake of his defeat by Ros Scott in the Lib Dem Presidential election, I wrote:
Lembit has tested to destruction the proposition that there is no such thing as bad publicity. He now needs to take himself more seriously in order to persuade others to take him more seriously. He has a Westminster seat to retain and will no doubt return to the Lib Dem front bench soon.

Otherwise... As I write this, Neil and Christine Hamilton, as if in dreadful warning to him, are appearing on Hole in the Wall.
If only he had listened.

Not just himself... His position and the electorate.
