Ming's minders try to gag Hemming

John Hemming, the West Midland's very own favourite for leadership of the rudderless ship known as the Liberal Democrat Party, is being quoted as I write at 379-1 on Politicalbetting to win the race. To put things in context, you can get similar odds that Celebrity Big Brother's lothario Gorgeous George Galloway will replace Tony Blair as Leader of the Labour Party. Despite the bookies scepticism, it would appear senior figures within the Lib Dems are so worried by the possibility of John sweeping the nation with his warm and passionate oratory... they have resorted to trying to gag him!

Meantime, cross party support for John continues to grow here, and here.
