Why it has to be Huhne

I've been plugging the claims of Chris Huhne for the Lib Dem leadership on this blog for some weeks now but I'd not had a chance to do so in my newspaper columns or podcast until the Dunfermline East result gave the issue a fresh topicality.

To read my detailed explanation of why Huhne is the man, click here, or alternatively, if you want to hear it, click here.

I'm attracted to Huhne as a candidate-in the strictly political sense I might add given the party's recent travails- for his: expertise in economics and policy generally, his determination to make a difference and his relative youth. Matthew parris described him last Saturday as 'mysteriously and indefinably ghastly' though offered no evidence for such a judgement.

Its called Dunfermline & Fife West. Dunfermline East was Gordon Brown's old seat, abolished for the last election.

probably Skip because Huhne has a supercilious manner worthy of Cecil Parkinson in his heyday (and looks a bit like him too)

I have in fact written a letter to the Times calling on Matthew to explain himself. I'll be amazed if they print it, but if so I'll make sure there's something on it here!
