Just read tomorrow's Observer about Sarah Teather giving up. Reacted intemperately thus:
"So bloody typical of the woman. Who ever said politics was easy ? Buggering off will not help and doing it just before conference is just egotistical and very unhelpful. Too much easy early success. Some of us have been fighting our corner for decades and won't be giving up."
If she had a real connection with Liberal Democrat members she'd realise that many share some of her dissatisfaction. She should listen to the Last Night of the Proms singing "You'll never walk alone".
Jonathan Calder also has interesting comment.
