Guido’s Slaphead Rule of Politics

Guido has said it before and it is an iron law of modern tele-democracy. Slapheads lose in British politics. Kinnock, Hague, IDS, Ming, Hughes, Oaten – all slapheads, all losers. On that basis Huhne (bottom) looks worth a punt.

Will Tory favourite Nick Clegg get involved as well and make it 10% of the parliamentary party standing? Why not? So far its an all-white-male affair, what about Sue Kramer? Its a nominations free-for-all after all, no sign of Hemming’s nomination – yet.
