Ming the Merciless Mercilessly Ditched

Mike Hancock MP says: "I think he was shafted by a complete shower of shits". That would be Cable and Hughes, who have been bad-mouthing Ming for some time, and who appeared on Newsnight last night looking like a couple of pallbearers. It has all happened a bit sharpish, I think. I had expected he would go after Christmas if the poll ratings were still poor. Obviously, there has been some skullduggery. (Still Ming is no innocent, he played Mark Antony to Julius Kennedy not so long ago. He who lives by the sword?). Ming is obviously peeved about it. He is reported to have said: "Sod the lot of them" and that is delicately described as a "paraphrase". The most likely successor is Nick Clegg. Overall I think this is better news for Labour than for the Tories.
