Well, Simon Hughes is at it again and once more he has ensured that the only media coverage about the Lib Dem's is questioning Ming's leadership. But there is a problem. He is right.
Ming's leadership and mistakes, for whatever the reason, have become the story and that cannot be allowed to happen. Inside the Campbell Bunker, instead of simply reacting to Simon Hughes with fury (which he does indeed deserve) should take a long hard look at their man and decide whether Ming will ever truly be able to turn round the bad opinion polls and the bad media coverage. My feeling is that he can't and he should resign, now, with a minimum of fuss.
And as for Simon Hughes washing our dirty laundry in public, he needs to strongly consider his position, his conduct and his likely future.
