Guido has been scanning the blogs of LibDems in an effort to understand the mindset of that dysfunctional party. Finally, and with some difficulty, a single Oaten supporting blog has been found. It is the blog of Robin and “legally blonde” Leah Darbyshire. It is the diary of a married couple who are LibDem activist geeks and happily includes leggy pictures of Leah who Robin describes as a “Jennifer Lopez lookalike”.

Interspersed between tales of their political discussions in the jacuzzi we get ringing endorsements for Mark Oaten – “Mark Oaten is definitely a good man, a good boss, a good politician and a good businessman. He also still manages to spend time with his kids. Therefore I can’t believe anyone else would be better at the leadership than him right now.”

Robin Darbyshire works for Mark Oaten.

UPDATE: Some comment makers claim Robin works for Hughes, which would be very odd given he’s backing Oaten. It’s all very bizarre.
