You're joking Ed. If Lembit "is the candidate who will give the party a chance to win" then why did he lose his safe seat in mid-Wales at the General Election? Sadly he's just a figure of fun these days thanks to his well-publicised relationships with weather presenters and cheeky girls.
In the London Mayor selection contest, Lewisham councillor Duwayne Brooks has just publicly thrown his hat in the ring. More information on his Facebook page.
The other declared candidate so far is Lembit Opik, who also has his own Facebook page. The number of fans for that latter page has been growing slowly but now there is a direct competitor to judge it against. So far, Lembit is ahead though Duwayne’s page has only very recently appeared.
