Soothsayer

Yesterday, Mark Oaten dropped out of the Lib Dem leadership race. I like to think I had something to do with it. When I was on Question Time last week (January 12) I said these words, "Mark Oaten for Prime Minister? I don't think so." Obviously, the Lib Dems won't form a government, but that's the premise on which they have any argument these days - they want to be the party of government, which means having a PM. By saying what I did, I sounded the death knell for Mark Oaten. So I expect a cheque in the post from Lib Dem MPs and supporters for pointing out to them that their Orange Book Oaten wouldn't make a good PM, or good leader.

Whatever man! They probably want to appeal to "arty" black men like you, who don't comb their hair. Therefore by dropping Mark Oaten, they hope that they would therefore secure your vote. Great blog dude - Enitan
