A relatively quiet Friday night, two sleepers when I got to WER both of whom were easily awoken and left to the Super to usher out of the station. According to the Standard Lembit Opik is touting himself as the Lib Dems candidate for mayor in 2012 and advocating that the Tube should run 24 hours.
Maybe that is what London needs, someone who has never represented a London constituency or served on a London borough council, who harbours ambitions to lead their party, a shameless self publicist who makes great efforts to get their face in front of the cameras, a history of philandering and absolutely no idea of how the Tube works. Expect to see him presenting “Have I got news for you”.
