The Future’s Orange, Not Bright for Kennedy

Guido does not pretend to understand the LibDems or their factions and ways. But it seems that the relatively right-wing Orange-booker Mark Oaten spammed all and sundry yesterday in an incongruous email that emphasised his liberal left-wing credentials to activists. Old Menzies Campbell is putting himself about as well. Mutterings abound that Cameron’s Conservatives are going to sweep up middle-class centrist voters who have never really felt comfortable with the leftie beardie wing of the LibDems. Looks like we have the prospect of another dead Kennedy.

Guido asked this before about Malcolm Rifkind: What is the question that the LibDems could ask to which the answer is Menzies Campbell?
