At last a little bit of excitement has developed in the LibDem leadership contest. The Huhnie monsters released a campaign briefing entitled “Calamity Clegg”. Guido (of course) has a copy of the now withdrawn document for you to download here.

UPDATE : Huhne’s lot are now saying Sorry and asking the returning officer for permission to publish the document. Eh?
