a report on conference with the price of Miriam Clegg's dress, followed by "Come back Lembit, the party needs you What the conference has missed is Lembit Opik, the ex-MP". No, no,no - or as King Lear Lear put it: "Never, never, never, never, never".
The piece continues with " Ian Wrigglesworth... held the stage immediately before Clegg". Well, he was on the stage and he did better than Sarah Teather, but "held" it ? I don't think so.
The writer finishes by praising Charles Kennedy. He was right about one thing - Charlie wasn't there. Years ago when Kennedy was a new MP, I met a man on the Isle of Skye who praised their previous MP, Russell Johnston, for ten minutes without stopping. Finally I said, "And now you have a new MP" and he thought for a moment before replying gently, "Aye, Mr Kennedy has his good points as well." So they tell me.
