Ming: I'm a failure
The cause of the commotion – Ming hilariously confirming what we already know – he is a failure. It was just better to hear him say it for himself. Even Kennedy was keen to get a boot in when:
Asked if he thought conditions were "harder" today than when he was leader and the party was doing better in the polls, he said: "No, I don't think so. There's nothing that has come as a surprise. It is nothing that should be fazing us at the moment."
Ouch – and to continue the gaffes the Ming confused Italy, with India and the conference staff spelt his name "Sir Menzeis Campbell”.
Squealer honestly, in his wildest dreams, could not imagine a better Lib Dem conference. And to top it all off – Ming gets this picture taken…
Ming showed us his political future
Meanwhile, his hoo in successor Nick Clegg's third party voting figures - supposed to show us what the Lib Dems are for - are utterly ridiculous.
He is from a different school to Old Ming and that's the all means necessary, exaggerate and fib school. If Ming really has offered him the succession for being a good boy now as reported in the Mail - bit annoying for members who thought they'd get a vote (cf Labour) - then this is a good thing for the rest of us I think.
He's a proper weasel not a kindly old gentleman or a figure of fun.
