What are they doing?

Who knows what is going through the minds of the Lib Dem parliamentary party. Quite alot has been blogged about this, so not an awful lot to add.
I can only see greater internal divisions in a post CK world, he actually does quite a good job of keeping us all together. The main contenders from the "left" & "right" would only create greater divisions.

Are you not sure so of the leaks are not coming out of party HQ. There are some real trouble makers working there who would like to make a name for themself.

The ability to hold together 'left' and 'right' of the party and, as you say the divisive impact that the election of a Mark Oaten or Simon Hughes might have means by accident rather than design CK is right for the post for now.

I'd personally prefer SH, but am not sure he commands great support within the parliamentary party and that would be disasterous long-term

Menzies Campbell, all the way. :)

I don't care how old he is. If... and I say *if* Kennedy steps down, I'll be backing Menzies.

Although, given a choice between Simon Hughes and Mark Oaten it'd probably be Simon Hughes.
