I hear that things are hotting up in the contest to lead the Liberal Democrat Assembly group. I'm told that Eleanor Burnham has thrown her feathers and fur hat into the ring. I reckon that she might win. Lets look at the whole field of 6 possible runners.
1) Pre-May favourite, Kirsty Williams completely blew it when her not so surreptitious, behind the scenes shenanigans sunk the Rainbow Coalition last May.
2) Loyalty to Mike German will stop the able Jenny Randerson entering the race - unless Mike calls it a day of course.
3) Mick Bates has never shown the slightest interest.
4) Peter Black has said that he would go for it - but only to ensure that there is a contest. Well, we have a contest - so what now Peter.
Which leaves us with Mike German and Eleanor. Now this really would be a contest to savour. I wonder which one Lembit Opik is going to support. I'll probably put a tenner on the other.
