Where's he gone. The ubiquitous one has dissappeared. Have the Lib Dems airbrushed Lembit Opik already? They can be so ruthless.
Last week there was no sign of him when Jenny Willott and Mike German launched the Lib Dem manifesto (or was it the pre-manifesto). No-one believed the spin about him never going to be there. Lembit is the Welsh Leader for goodness sake!
And now Mick Bates has airbrushed him as well. In today's Montgomeryshire County Times the Lib Dems are advertising a surgery. For years it has been a joint surgery with photos of 'Lem' and Mick Bates, the AM for Montgomeryshire. But today, Mick is there all smiles and alone. It is coming to something when Mick Bates has to airbrush Lembit. I suspect Mick is getting a bit worried about the advance of our man, Dan Munford who is making a real impact - and he sees Lembit as a liability. Can it get any worse than this?
